Kirkland Police Policy on Immigration Status

On November 18, the Seattle Times published a statement from the Bellevue Police Chief saying that Bellevue officers won’t ask residents for immigration status and won’t use police resources to apprehend undocumented immigrants unless they are suspected of a serious crime. Since then, many Kirkland residents have asked about the policy of the Kirkland Police regarding immigration status.

 

“Kirkland has had a long standing policy never to ask for immigration papers,” said Kirkland Police Chief Cherie Harris. “We want people to know that our job is to protect and serve the entire community and no resident should fear reporting any crime or intimidation, regardless of their immigration status.

The investigation was unable to locate any call of that type being received through our dispatch center and any officers being dispatched to a call. Investigators had no information on the author of the Facebook post as the information had been marked out on the email. Yesterday investigators were finally able to determine who the author of the original post was and interviewed her at her work location in Kirkland.  During the interview the female admitted she had fabricated the entire event and no assault had occurred and the Kirkland Police were never called.  The female cited her reason for posting the false claim as “being distraught over the recent election”…
