East Wenatchee Police Chief Rick Johnson proposes SRO to Eastmont High School

Slices of Wenatchee

Good Morning it’s Saturday April 24th, and this is The Wenatchee World’s newest podcast, Slices of Wenatchee. We’re excited to bring you a closer look at one of our top stories and other announcements every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.  Today - East Wenatchee Police Chief Rick Johnson has proposed adding a resource officer to Eastmont High School. He says this would provide much more than just an extra sense of security on campus. This episode is brought to you by Equilus Group Incorporated. Equilus Group, Inc is a Registered Investment Advisory Firm in the states of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. Equilus Group, Inc- Building Your Financial Success. Learn more at Equilusfinancial.com. Member SIPC and FINRA. - Now our feature story... East Wenatchee Police Chief Rick Johnson has proposed adding a resource officer to Eastmont High School. He says the move would provide much more than just an extra sense of security on campus. Johnson says that having a positive relationship with the police department is essential to increasing public safety locally. In fact, he’s looking at creative ways to reach out to the public in a positive way instead of just responding when things are bad. According to Johnson a school resource officer, or SRO is the single biggest way the police department can impact the most people at a time in their life when they are making opinions of police.  On April 12th, he told the school board that the program gets sold sometimes as a deterrent for violent crime. And yes, it absolutely is, but Johnson thinks that it’s not necessarily the most important role for an SRO. A resource officer is building relationships that otherwise would not exist.  They’re not just a cop to students. They are a public safety advocate, a mentor, a public safety professional, and a counselor. In his proposal, Johnson said the school district would have a huge role in the selection process of the SRO. They’d only move forward if they could find the right person for the job. The salary would be $80,952, and Johnson hopes to have the SRO ready for January 2022. But not everyone on the school board was… on board. Whitney Smith asked why the school district needs a resource officer when police could come to campus anytime. Again, Johnson expressed that as public safety professionals, the mission is public safety. But an SRO on the other hand, their mission is just that of an individual campus. East Wenatchee Mayor Jerrilea Crawford said she and Johnson have been working to reestablish the positive relationship within the community -- and not only for the police department but for the city as a whole. It’s unclear at this point when the school board will continue the conversation about the SRO, but the budget is scheduled to be adopted later this summer on July 12. And several years ago, Superintendent Garn Christensen said the school board made a decision to add two SROs. But the board didn’t know if the funds would be available to maintain the program,  so they put it on hold. And this year, due to COVID, they didn’t know if they’d even have students on campus. That, and a change in city leadership. So we once again the program was postponed.  But Christensen says that now with Chief Johnson here, he has a proposal that the board reconsider. Johnson, who is completing his 10th month at the East Wenatchee Police Department, began his presentation to the board talking about all the changes he’s made at the agency.  He noted they’ve implemented an internal training program for staff in crisis intervention, patrol tactics, de-escalation, use of force, domestic violence law updates, active shooter response, first aid, emergency vehicle operations and defensive tactics. Why? According to Johnson, historically the East Wenatchee Police Department had a reputation of not training to the same level as the other agencies in the area. The  goal is to be on par if not surpass them. He also added that East Wenatchee Police will have body cameras on all commissioned staff.

This week - 26 year old Isabel Bedolla, a Child and Family therapist at the Children’s Home Society of Washington. After graduating from Washington State University with a bachelor’s degree in psychology in 2016, Bedolla returned to the Wenatchee Valley to start her career. She went on to complete her master’s degree in clinical counseling from Bellevue University in November 2020. She worked for four years as a victim advocate at SAGE, a nonprofit that supports survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and child victims of violence. Bedolla was one of the first and only bilingual forensic interviewers, building bridges in the community by creating partnerships with populations that traditionally have had no visibility or access to services.  She also served on the executive board in organizing SAGE’s fundraising gala, “Enchanted Evening”. The Gala helps the organization continue its free services. As part of her master’s program, she also completed a clinical internship at Children’s Home Society of Washington. Her goal was to become a licensed mental health counselor, one of only 5.5% of psychologists nationally who can provide mental health care services in Spanish. And now, she’s working at Children’s Home Society of Washington as a child and family therapist. When we asked Bedolla what she’s proud of she told us that her biggest accomplishments at SAGE were  always related to clients. She was in a special position where she got to see someone at their most vulnerable and then ultimately see them flourish with time.  Bedolla also got the opportunity to work with different populations and different age groups, which challenged her to learn new ways on how to offer services to each individual client. She’s proud of the community that she serves. Bedolla told us that she’s been asked on multiple occasions why she doesn’t broaden her horizons and move out of the valley. But working with the community here has given her a chance to see that there is always an opportunity to make the community stronger. We also asked what inspires her, and she said that from an early age her dad always told her that if she wanted to achieve something, then she needed to put the time and energy toward it.  And now, what continues to inspire Bedolla  is for other children to see that they are capable of being successful too. Being Hispanic, she hopes that she can motivate others to pursue their dreams of their own. BedollaI wants to see more diversity in all professions because that gives children the ability to think to themselves, “that could be me one day.” Now, some history… Did you know that the Wenatchee Youth Circus was founded in 1952 by Paul K. Pugh? Known as the biggest little circus in the world, it’s one of the top non-professional circus troupes in the US. For almost seventy years, they’ve traveled the country and played shows to over 2 million people. While the kids who perform in the circus often go on to other careers, many have turned pro with Ringling Brothers, Cirque du Soleil, and more. In 2017 they were featured in the Smithsonian Folklife Festival.  - Thanks for listening. Today’s episode is brought to you by Equilus Group, Inc- Building Your Financial Success.
