New law turns threatening police into felonyKENNEWICK — It soon will be a felony to threaten a police officer, prosecutor, defense attorney, crime victim advocate and corrections officer.
A bill introduced this year after an incident involving threats against a Kennewick police officer was passed by the House and Senate and is being signed today by Gov. Chris Gregoire.
"If we can't keep our own personnel safe, it's hard for us to go out and keep the public safe," said Kennewick Police Chief Ken Hohenberg. "I always go back to what's on the back of our patrol cars, 'Committed to your safety.' To me, that applies internally for personnel as well as externally to the public."
