At the Yakima Police Department, we believe in building relationships—relationships between ourselves and the community we protect, relationships between our fellow officers and their families, and personal relationships to support us in what we do every day.
That is why at YPD, we believe in providing our members a fulfilling work environment, excellent pay and benefits, and a supportive community so they can stay focused on the life-saving duties they perform.
At YPD we pride ourselves on taking care of those who take care of our community members every day and we know it makes all the difference.
