"We signed in “other” today because our members just aren’t sure whether this is a good policy proposal or a bad one. We do know is that our members are desirous of the opportunity to fully, meaningfully, and thoughtfully analyze and understand the ramifications of such a transfer on their pensions – both long and short term.
On behalf of the Washington State Fraternal Order of Police, we urge you to find a compromise and immediately end the partial government shutdown. As a law enforcement association, we work to ensure our communities are safe. We believe in good policy that supports public safety and encourage you to develop bi-partisan, long-term legislation that provides comprehensive border security.

On behalf of the Washington State Fraternal Order of Police, I would like to provide you information on our stance related to I-940 referring to Police Use of Deadly Force. The Washington State Fraternal Order of Police has always believed that I-940, as written, is bad policy. This last legislative session, our organization sat at the table with other Law Enforcement organizations, Legislators from both sides of the aisle, and leaders from De-Escalate Washington to discuss making needed improvements to the Initiative.
