Send Spokane Police Guild contract back for more workWith protests and national attention shining fresh scrutiny on the role of police in community safety, this is either the best or worst time possible for the Spokane Police Guild to seek a new contract. It’s great if you’re a believer in reform, government oversight and prudent fiscal policy. It’s not so great if you’re a cop looking for a raise and minimal watchdogging.
