King County Local Dive: Police accountability and mail delivery

Welcome to a new podcast for King County residents.

Welcome to the King County Local Dive, a new weekly podcast that highlights headlines from Sound Publishing newspapers throughout Washington state’s largest and most diverse county.

The podcast will feature original watchdog reporting from King County journalists and will focus on how we hold our public entities and public officials accountable.

This inaugural episode takes a closer look at an Auburn police officer who committed a hit-and-run; the countywide impact of a Redmond mail distribution center’s potential closure; the ongoing case of a Kent assistant police chief who was placed on leave for displaying Nazi insignia; and the controversial anti-vaccination comments made by a Federal Way City Councilmember.

Listen below:

Stories for the King County Local Dive are first reported in Sound Publishing’s King County newspapers: Federal Way Mirror, Auburn Reporter, Kent Reporter, Renton Reporter, Enumclaw Courier-Herald, Mercer Island Reporter, Snoqualmie Valley Record, Kirkland Reporter, Issaquah Reporter, Redmond Reporter, Bothell-Kenmore Reporter, Bellevue Reporter and Seattle Weekly.
