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.
On this week’s episode we discuss a restorative justice program for juvenile defenders in King County with a juvenile prosecutor; reporter Alex Bruell from the Enumclaw Courier-Herald comes on to discuss how Washington state legislators tweaked a sweeping set of police reforms from the previous year; and how The Snoqualmie Tribe of Indians is petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court to review a decision that they say sets a dangerous legal precedent for tribes across the country.
A new episode is available every Friday. Each episode features original watchdog reporting from our local journalists with a focus on how we hold our public entities and public officials accountable.
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.
