Scott North has been a courts and police reporter with The Herald in Everett, Washington, since 1987 and is also now an assistant city editor. Major projects have included investigation of the origins of gang activity in Guatemala.

“ . . . they cover crime with depth, breadth, and an eye for future stories. Most innovative of all, they invite the community into the process.”
