2012 Was a Good Year for Yakima Police Department With Fewer Shots Fired

kit

Crimes like murder and shots fired calls went down in Yakima in 2012, marking a good year say Yakima Police Department. The only officer involved shooting last year was on North 34th Avenue in October. A bloody hotel room leads Yakima Police Department to a Yakima man armed with a rifle in his backyard. When the man fired, Yakima police fired back. But, the bullet that killed him was his own. The only other time an officer fired his or her weapon was at a dog on two separate occasions. It’s a major contrast from 2011 when officers pulled the trigger four times and had to kill two suspects. That was more than any other time in the department’s history. Before 2011, Yakima police didn’t have a deadly officer-involved shooting since 2007. Prosecutors determined officers were justified in the 2011 shootings.
