Community Cares Fund

The department has launched a new Kennewick Police Community Care Fund with $13,000 donated by Kennewick businesses and individuals to start the new program, police Chief Ken Hohenberg announced Monday.

The program was born out of a Feb. 6 breakfast conversation among Hohenberg and two friends — Dave Retter, the owner/broker of Retter & Company Sotheby’s International Realty, and Jim Spracklen, who once worked for the Kennewick police and now works for Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s national security directorate.
