Yakima Police Hoping You’ll Host “A” Squad Morning Muster
You've heard of "Coffee with a Cop."
Yakima Police have held numerous Coffee with a Cop events over the last several years and others are planned in the future. However, there's another way to help and thank Yakima Officers, especially if you have a large enough place to gather.
THE MORNING MUSTER IS HELD EVERY MORNING, MAYBE AT YOUR PLACE
Each morning, Yakima Police Department "A" squad meets for a "morning muster" to talk about the day ahead and how they'll continue to keep Yakima safe. They usually meet at the Yakima Police Department, but they're also open to meeting in other areas, like maybe your place of business. This would help give the officers support they want from the community at-large.

IT'S ALL ABOUT SUPPORTING THE HARD WORKING OFFICERS
Captain Jay Seely brags about the group of young officers who are determined to keep Yakima safe and are a big part of the community. They work from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., so it's a long day. Seely says the Yakima Police Department has been short 22 officers since 2020, so officers are having to work longer shifts and more overtime. He says it's just another reason why the police department hopes more people host the morning meeting.

HOW TO HOST A MORNING MUSTER MEETING FOR THE YAKIMA POLICE
It's easy to host the police officers at your business establishment, just like 1280 NewsTalk KIT did this week. If you can provide them with coffee, some morning snacks, and a place to gather, then consider making the call. If you are interested, contact Sargeant Ryan Wisner at the Yakima Police Department, (509) 575-6200. Seely says the officers are willing to pay--they're not looking for free stuff, they really just want new places to meet in the mornings.
