‘The numbers are horrific!’ – Rep. Eric Robertson discusses Washington State Patrol staffing shortages with Ari Hoffman on KVI Radio


Speaking with KVI’s Ari Hoffman, Rep. Eric Robertson, R-Sumner, said of the Washington State Patrol staffing shortages, “The numbers are horrific. They’re the largest I think they have ever historically been as far as vacancies.”

Robertson blames, in part, the governor’s vaccination mandate, the inability to recruit new officers, and the department excluding potential candidates to ensure diversity in the workforce.
