Police increase security for MLK march

Spokane police have a message for anyone considering participating in the Martin Luther King Jr. Unity March on Monday: “The bad guys aren’t going to win, and they need to come down and show them that,” said Lt. Joe Walker.

Walker, who will be overseeing police presence at the march, explained the police preparations for the march during a meeting with media Tuesday. Police declined to say how many officers will be on hand but said people can expect to see one on nearly every corner. The department expects to bring in 12 to 15 extra officers on overtime.
