English term or phrase:Beat reporting
It is defined as: Beat reporting is the craft of reporting on an issue or particular sector, organization or institution over time. Beat reporters build up a base of knowledge on and gain familiarity with the sector, allowing them to provide insight and commentary in addition to reporting straight facts. This distinguishes them from other journalists who might cover similar stories from time to time.
Can anybody provide me with an Arabic term that can do the job?
In one sense they are specialized reporters = محررين متخصصين like محرر إقنصادي، محرر الرياضة in another sense the beat can be a locality, the reporters then are مراسلين like مراسلنا في الضاحية الجنوبية أو مراسلنا في حيفا(to quote current events in Lebanon

And the police officer on the street walking a certain route everyday has been known to walk the beat.
They are then reporters who follow a certain beat to follow up a certain story.
