On September 21, 2020 a Spokane County Superior court judge issued a preliminary civil injunction regarding the time, manner and place of events held by one group outside the Planned Parenthood – Spokane Health Center.
SPD anticipates continued events at or near that location so we are taking a moment to address, in advance, potential issues that will have to be navigated. We will continue to work to protect people and property, ensure the health center is able to operate without disruption and to enforce local and state laws. In addition, SPD personnel will report any suspected violations of the civil injunction to the court for judicial review and adjudication as directed by the judge. The Court did not grant law enforcement authority to criminally enforce violations of the injunction. SPD will enforce any applicable violations of state and local laws.
