Over the years, Hohenberg continued to grow in the department by rising in the ranks and serving as a sergeant, lieutenant, captain, assistant chief. According to his biography, in 2003, he was named Chief of Police.
Hohenberg said he is proud of his service, including creating the Kennewick’s Community Care Fund, which gives officers a chance to help people “down on their luck” and in need of gas, groceries, or a motel room. “I tell police officials if you think it’s the right thing to do in your hearts, then just go do it,” said Hohenberg.
