Kennewick Police Introduce Their New Officer

Early this morning was the swearing in ceremony for the new member of the Kennewick Police Department.

Police Chief Ken Hohenberg welcomed Darren Elison with his new badge, which was placed on his chest by his wife.  Elison attended Richland High School, before eventually graduating in Connecticut.  After high school, Elison served in the Air Force, and served 6 years in the military police.

The Kennewick Police Department is one officer short of a full staff.  They are currently in the hiring process.
