Senator Fortunato meets local graduates of the Basic Law Enforcement Academy

Senator Fortunato was privileged to attend the June 28, 2017 Basic Law Enforcement Academy graduation ceremonies of Class 750.  The academy is an essential institution that trains officers to protect us and  themselves, and even to keep safe the people they are duty-bound to arrest. It ensures that every local officer has consistent and high quality training guided by 14 Commissioners and our state legislature.

This legislative session, Sen. Fortunato has been proud to support the needs of law enforcement. As a member of the Senate Transportation committee, Senator Fortunato supported making raises offered to Washington State Patrol troopers permanent and improving resources for public safety.
