Our LAPD Story

Sep 6 2019 • 39 mins

Whether it's Detective Stabler, Benson, Columbo, or Bosch, we all have our favorite T.V. Detectives. While you may have never heard of Detective Mitzi Roberts, you have seen her work. Detective Roberts is not only a technical advisor for the Amazon series 'Bosch', she is the inspiration for one of the characters in the series by writer/creator Michael Connelly, and a real life LAPD Robbery-Homicide Detective. This chapter of Our LAPD Story takes you through how Detective Roberts went from managing an L.A. staple, Mel's Dinner, to investigating some of our city's most notorious and disturbing crimes.
