Kittitas County, WA -
The Kittitas County Government including all departments and offices stands behind local law enforcement. As a symbol of that support, the Kittitas County Board of Commissioners has directed that all county government buildings will lower their flags to half-mast in honor of fallen Deputy Ryan Thompson and injured Officer Benito Chavez.
“This is a small county and everyone here knows and cares about each other,” states Lisa Young, Kittitas County Human Resources Director. “There are 386 employees, so most of us know each other and each other’s families. Deputy Thompson leaves behind a family, and many in our community and beyond want to show their support.”
Anyone wanting to give monetarily to Deputy Thompson’s or Officer Chavez’s families may make donations to US Bank to any of these three accounts:
