Spokane Sheriff Wants To Get Rid of Arbitration For Deputies
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Spokane Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich (kuh-NEZ'-oh-vich) is seeking more authority to fire deputies who break the law. State Rep. Kevin Parker of Spokane is sponsoring a bill supported by Knezovich and other sheriffs around Washington. KXLY-TV reports it would prevent deputies who are fired for lying or law-breaking from winning their jobs back through arbitration. Parker says it would help restore public trust in law enforcement.
