Yakima Police Looking to Recruit Outside the State

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA.--The Yakima Police Department wants to recruit other officers from around the country.

Officers traveled to Arizona this week to try and attract people to Yakima and see what it has to offer.

Police said the goal is to get new officers on the street faster than waiting for new recruits to go through the state academy. New recruits could take around three years before they're ready to become full-time officers.
