A Message from Gig Harbor’s Chief of Police Kelly Busey:
IT MAY SEEM RIGHT IN THE MOMENT, BUT …
At a time when we are experiencing a surge in crime, I urge all citizens to exercise uncanny patience. The cause of this increase in primarily ‘property crimes’ can be traced to a combination of dubious changes in law and the inability of police officers to book people into jail due to Covid-related restrictions.
It is very frustrating to witness a crime in progress, but intervening as a citizen, especially while displaying a firearm, is normally not a wise choice. In many instances, such action can escalate the situation to a point that is not proportionate to the crime in progress. Nobody wins in those situations. Do what you think is appropriate to protect human life from imminent harm, but remember that in virtually all other situations, a property crime is not worth the risk of vigilantism. Your safety matters more than the monetary loss in the incident at hand.
