Yakima City Council Says No Lights, Camera, Action For Police
The Yakima City Council isn't interested in having a company film the Yakima Police Department.
The Yakima City Council Tuesday reviewed a letter of agreement between the city and Catagory 6 Media. The proposal was rejected by the council saying they don't want the city featured on national broadcast.
City officials feel the show could have painted the area in a bad light
The company was attempting to gain access to the department for filming in the spring and summer. According to the city "the Series would have featured current investigations and ride-alongs by Production with the Department, as well as focusing on
earlier history regarding the Department and their cases."
City officials say the show could have impacted tourism in the area so the voted against the proposal.
