The YPD Difference…

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.

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

Follow YPD on Twitter tomorrow, July 2nd, from 9:00am until 4:00pm as two of our bike patrol officers participate in our first attempt at a “Tweet-Along”.
