Spokane, Wa. chief invokes rarely used rule to back officer
By Jody Lawrence-Turner
Spokane Spokesman Review
Chief Anne Kirkpatrick said she ordered Sgt. Dan Torok to issue a statement about his actions; if he had refused, he could have been fired, she said. The contents of the statement, however, can't be used against the officer in a criminal investigation.
"There's nothing from the independent investigation … that makes me feel the officer did anything but what he had to," Kirkpatrick said.
