74 - The Angel of Skid Row: A cop's story of working in L.A.'s Skid Row
Joseph has worked downtown LA's Skid Row area for 21 years and has dedicated his life to being a "champion for the homeless." He shares his story on this episode of the Olympic & Bundy Podcast with Christine Devine. He also brought along a friend. Colleen Granderson was once homeless and now works side by side with Joseph and the LAPD.
It's a neighborhood of tent cities alongside service organizations, and rescue mission and shelters. Joseph is a Senior Lead Officer. He says his team has helped 100 homeless people to get off the streets.
He's also critical of current policy on LA's homeless crisis that has in his words left officers with "their hands tied."
