LAPD vows to audit 4,000 cases of serious child abuse not investigated since 2018


The top commander of the Los Angeles Police Department’s juvenile detectives faced tough questioning from L.A. County commissioners Monday, a day after revelations that thousands of cases of serious child abuse in the city were not investigated over roughly the past year-and-a-half.

Capt. Paul Espinosa, chief of the LAPD’s Juvenile Division, said his staff would conduct an audit of the reports his detectives apparently did not follow up to determine what happened in each case.
