Domestic Violence Calls in Kennewick Remain High

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- Kennewick police say the number of domestic violence calls in Kennewick has been consistently high the last few months. On saturday, April 5th., police arrested three people for domestic violence.

Right now police are getting an average of two to three DV calls per day. Officers say these calls aren't limited to just couples.

They also see fights and arguments between parents and kids.

"People just need to think about the consequences, consequences of going to jail, possibly losing their job, losing fire arms rights, a whole list all host of consequences," said Corporal Matt Newton, with the Kennewick Police Department.  

Newton says alcohol is involved in most of these situations, but no case is exactly the same. Police say there are resources for families dealing with domestic violence. You can call the police department if you need more information.
