Kennewick Police Department Welcomes a New Hire

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, WA- On Monday morning the Kennewick Police Department welcomed Dave Hughes as a new officer. Chief Ken Hohenberg swore Hughes in at a ceremony held at the City Council Chambers. 

Hughes was a deputy with the Benton County Sheriff's Office for fifteen years. He told us, "I'm excited to start with Kennewick, and I talked before about the community support and to me police work is all about the community and that's what it is, it's supporting and helping the community. The way Kennewick goes about their business and they way they treat their community and serve their community is second to none". 

Hughes was there with his family and his wife was the one Chief Hohenberg had put the Kennewick Police Department badge on the new officer.
