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

Man this is getting ridiculous. This is the third missing child post for yakima I have seen today!!

Sometimes it helps if people know when she went missing and from where? Did she have a car? Did she leave with someone?

Shared on Yakima Scan Missing Persons

Prayers she is found safe💙🙏💙

I said it once & I’ll say it again…. There’s too many kids missing in this one city alone. What’s going on in Yakima ?!

She looked damn 30’

This is the 4th child I’ve seen in 2 days missing. What the hell?!

Everyone here I just wanna say that I’m not missing my mom actually kicked me out from the house and I had no choice but to leave and now she’s saying that I’m missing lol I will be 18 in a two months so I figured since she kicked me out I left, but I am safe!! Thank you Ypd and all of yakimas concerned citizens I appreciate it a lot , just wanna make it clear that I am safe and I am not missing. Ty for yours guys time and concerns.🙏🏼
