City to consider shifting police officers into different areas of work

YAKIMA, Wash. -- The city is looking to redirect Yakima police into different areas of work.

One idea is to move two officers from YPAL to patrol.

One council member suggested YPD move officers from patrol to property theft crimes.

The city manager will meet with the police chief in a couple of weeks to discuss possible plans.
