Yakima Police Chief Dominic Rizzi is no longer in the running for a police chief job in the City of Richland. The Richland City Manager Cindy Reents confirms she did not find the right candidate to fill the police chief position. “I appreciate the patience of the community throughout this very important process. The City Council and I are committed to this process and are determined to find the right fit for our City. Therefore, I have released all remaining candidates and will reevaluate the candidate market in the future."
The other candidate in the running to become the new Richland Police Cheif was Al Escalera of Pasco who runs the Sunnyside Police Department.
