Yakima Police Chief Dominic Rizzi Jr. will stay on the job in Yakima after he was not named as the new police chief in Topeka, Kansas. Rizzi was among the top three candidates hoping to land the job in Kansas.
Rizzi has been in Yakima since 2012 but has tried to leave the area several times for a new job. In fact in 2016 Rizzi was a finalist for Chief of the Spokane Police Department. At that time he said he wasn't going to look for further jobs and would retire in Washington State.

Topeka, Kansas officials have named Bill Cochran the interim Topeka Chief as the new leader of the Topeka Police Department.
