Description

A five-month investigation showed that at least 41 officers in King and Pierce counties have been accused of domestic assault. Most faced few, if any, professional reprimands, and only half faced charges. Furthermore, most law enforcement agencies lacked policies about how to handle domestic violence involving law officers. Amid the newspaper's investigation, a chilling example highlighted the danger : a police chief accused of domestic violence fatally shot his estranged wife before killing himself.
