SPD Takes Extra Precautions For 2012 MLK Parade

SPOKANE POLICE DEPT. PRESS RELEASE: This year's Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade in downtown Spokane will feature more safety precautions to ensure the safety of people attending the parade as well as those in nearby areas. In addition to our usual enhanced security for events in downtown Spokane, this year's MLK Day Parade will include the following additional provisions:

  • Citizens will see an increased police presence and will find a uniformed police officer at every intersection along the parade route
  • There will be a command post for emergency responders to monitor event operations. 
  • Members of the Explosive Disposal Unit will be on site, to ensure a rapid response to any possible threats
  • Additional behind the scenes measures are being implemented as well

The annual MLK Day march is an opportunity for our citizens to speak out against hate. We encourage each and every member of our community to attend on January 16, 2012 at 10am at the INB Performing Arts Center. Members of the Police command staff will be attending and marching in this parade alongside the rest of the community.

Throughout the year, the safety of our community is of the utmost importance to your Spokane Police and Fire Department. It is our pledge to do everything in our power to help our community feel safe as well as stay safe at the MLK Day Parade and other events in this area.

(The parade route is the same as the past 20 years.....leaving the INB Performing Arts Center, south on Bernard and then west on Main to Riverpark Square)
