Message from Chief Matt Murray…

Hi, I’m Matthew Murray, Yakima’s Chief of Police. I’ve been a police officer for nearly 30 years, and I’m proud to be leading our great police force here in Yakima. We believe that to effectively police in a community, there has to be trust—and trust is built in relationships. That’s why, since starting as Chief of Police, I’ve made it a priority to get out into the community and get to know people. If you see me or other officers in your neighborhood, we invite you to come say hello or just give us a wave. It’s our goal to build relationships and ultimately reduce crime. When police know their community and have earned the trust of its residents that builds stronger, safer communities. Communication is a powerful tool in bringing communities together and keeping them safe. This website is designed to help you find what you need. If you have questions, please let us know. We’re here to listen and connect.

– Chief Murray

💙💪❤️👮‍♂️good job

Are these just pull overs or conducting check points?

How about you start posting how many dope houses you bust, or something productive that actually improves our quality of life . Nobody really cares how many citizens you've extorted for profit. Other than the Dui stops, most of this is just racketeering; Unless ypd is just a traffic cop station.

Praying she is safe and will be found...

Yakima Police Department, is this post still valid or is she home?

Please go home it's not safe out here in the streets there is people out here that care about so please go home sweetie

Nobody is more important than your family and those are the ones that love and care about you the most. I totally understand at this age being a mother of 5. Sometimes as a teen we think we're grown and disrespect rules of the home. Honey as a mother I appreciate communication with my kids, it opens more privileges because I can trust more. Leaving home is causing stress, sadness and heartache...Please just go home and check in with your family that's all they want, then maybe you can ask to hangout with a friend but your family needs to know your safe. Praying for a safe return 🙏

If you cannot go home, please call there just to ease their minds.

Go home. Please parents love you streets are hard and dangerous your friends will fade away. Thank you. ☺

Is. Sister home yet. We. All love you ☺

Looks like the child that was walking down 5th Ave off Yakima Ave around 9am yesterday. She had a blueish blanket sleeping bag looking material.
