Whenever a police officer has probable cause to believe that a person has committed any act set forth in subsection (4) of this section on any public facility then the police officer has authority to issue the person a written order prohibiting that person from entering or remaining in the public facility where the act was alleged to be committed. When a police officer issues a written order, the order shall remain effective for 45 calendar days from the date of issuance.

(b) Issuance of Written Order by Court. Whenever a criminal charge has been filed in a court of competent jurisdiction against a person wherein it is alleged that the criminal conduct occurred at a public facility, the judge, commissioner, or judge pro tempore of the court shall have the authority to issue a written order either while the criminal matter is pending or, if the person was convicted of a criminal charge, as a part of the person’s sentencing conditions prohibiting that person from entering or remaining in the public facility where the act was alleged to be committed. When a judge, commissioner, or judge pro tempore issues a written order, the effective date and expiration date shall be set by such judge, commissioner or judge pro tempore; provided, that the expiration date on such order shall not extend beyond the date which the court has jurisdiction over the person.

(c) Contents of Written Order. The written order shall contain:

(a) Any act that qualifies as a felony, gross misdemeanor or misdemeanor crime by federal, state, or local law; and

(b) Any act that qualifies as a civil infraction as stated in the Wenatchee City Code.

If a request for a hearing is not timely received by the department, then the right to a hearing will be waived.

Proof of probable cause may be established based upon the sworn declarations, including a police officer’s report, without further evidentiary foundation. Any sworn declaration may be supplemented by the testimony of witnesses or the presentation of other evidence.

(d) Regulation of Hearing.

(i) The chief shall regulate the course of the hearing.
