California's most vulnerable not receiving the protection they deserve

"As part of an ongoing investigation, California Watch has detailed how California's state-run board-and-care institutions' internal police force, created by the state to protect the vulnerable residents at these state homes, often fails to conduct basic police work when patients are abused and harmed."

"In case after case, detectives and officers have delayed interviews with witnesses or suspects – if they have conducted interviews at all. The force also has waited too long to collect evidence or secure crime scenes and has been accused of going easy on co-workers who care for the disabled."
