YPD recruiting officer says officers love Yakima
Yakima Police Department recruiting officer Hailie Meyers, who works every day to try to attract people to work in the area, says that while there are people retiring early or leaving region, it’s not because of the way the officers are treated in Yakima or because of any other political issue. . Meyers also says they don’t see a lot of officers looking for jobs in big cities. So while other departments around the country are seeing many officers leave because of the way they are treated and because of the pressure they are currently under, this is not happening in the Yakima Police Department.
Meyers says it’s mainly because people support the officers and their work in the Yakima Valley.
