The recruitment officer for the YPD says officers love Yakima
Yakima Police Department Recruitment Officer Hailie Meyers who works every day trying to attract people to work in the area says while they do have people retire early or leave the area it's not because of the way officers are treated in Yakima or because of any other political problems. Meyers also says they're not seeing a large amount of officers looking for jobs from larger cities. So while other departments around the country are seeing many officers leave because of the way they're being treated and because of the pressure they're now under it's not happening in the Yakima Police Department.
Meyers says that's mainly because people support officers and their work in the Yakima Valley.
