Benton County homicide-free in 2009

With the Tri Cities being one of the safest communities to live in, in spite of a growing population, the area’s ‘top cops’ announced that there were no homicides here in 2009. A strong partnership between the law enforcement agencies and a community of citizens keeping a watchful eye on their neighborhoods are contributing factors.

Benton County’s rate is approximately 1/3 of Washington state’s average of 43 crimes per 1,000 resident, and that being 15 crimes per 1,000.  Law enforcement agencies are working together to keep our communities safe and their hard work has paid off and is much appreciated.
