Krystle Bailey lives in Yakima. She has three children younger than 10 years of age. "I stay vigilant. I make sure I check people out."
Selah has the fourth-highest sex offender density with one for every 917 people. Zillah is the lowest on the list with only one sex offender in that city.
I reached out to Union Gap's police department to see if anything more is done to inform neighbors when a sex offender moves to town. No officer would talk to me. The Yakima Police Department says it relies on the county to keep the registry updated and disseminate information through press releases. All of that ultimately leaves it up to you to check the website. And, stay informed about who lives in your neighborhood. State law prohibits the general public disclosure of information for Level I sex offenders. According to the Sheriff's Office website, there are currently 670 Level I offenders registered in Yakima County.
You can find more information on the addresses of Level II and II sex offenders living near you on the Yakima County sheriff's website.
