L.A. probation officers visit Berlin counterparts in sister city exchange

“All the probation officers [here in Berlin, Germany] are social workers to begin with,” said County of Los Angeles Deputy Chief Howard Wong. “In L.A., usually, that’s not the case. We’re part law enforcement, court officers, and part police. We go in, we arrest, we search…it’s more social working here. That’s the biggest difference.”
