In Sacramento there are only seven code enforcement officers inspecting 50,000 rental properties. Capital Public Radio's environment reporter Amy Quinton rode along with an officer to get a closer look at the types of hazards he encounters.

That story is the latest episode from The View From Here: Place And Privilege podcast. Quinton recorded an interview with Beth Ruyak to talk about what she saw and what the challenges are for code enforcement officers.
