WAFOP Response to Benton County Sheriff
Updated On: Mar 02, 2020

As to the current matter, Sheriff Hatcher’s statement dated 2/28/2020 states;

“As the Sheriff, I am ultimately responsible for everything that happens within the organization and I will take ownership for our current circumstance. I have had a long history of having the support of my staff, peers and community.”

The Washington State FOP commends the Sheriff’s ownership of the current condition of the Benton County Sheriff’s Office and the undesirable work environment that the members of the Benton County Sheriff’s Guild are experiencing.  Unfortunately concerns regarding the Sheriff’s labor related issues, employment practices, allegations relating to misuse of public funds to the detriment of public safety and allegations relating to domestic violence continue to emerge, and a thorough independent investigation would help to shed light on the accuracy of all accusations.
