YAKIMA, Wash. -- City Council approved a grant application for the Yakima Police Department to help with the gang problem.
Captain Jeff Schneider is applying for a grant that would bring in funding of more than $90,000. If granted, the money would be split between the city and the county, with the city getting more than $60,000.
The money would go towards extra gang patrols. YPD could see the funding in October.
