Our LAPD Story returns with a brand new episode. LAPD Detective Brent Hopkins has lived two lives, one as a journalist for a major Los Angeles newspaper and the other as a police officer. While these two careers are often at odds, Hopkins believes there are many similarities in the professions. In fact, he believes a healthy working relationship between the press and the police is critical. It's just one of the lessons he has learned walking from one side of the yellow police tape to the other.
