Legal Question: Can Police From Different Jurisdictions Issue Speeding Tickets?

I received a speeding ticket in Renton from a Newcastle police officer. Is this legal?

Washington State Law is completely watered down on cross-jurisdictional exercise of police powers. I remember watching the old show Dukes of Hazard when the Dukes would lead the sheriff on a high speed chance to the county line and once across, the cops would pull off and throw his hat on the seat in disgust! Well partner, those days are a gone in this state.
