YPD working to get ex-cons out of town

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Police continue to battle with having too many ex-cons move to Yakima. They had their first meeting with the Department of Corrections to tackle the issue.

Their complaint is that offenders are being sent here who have no ties to Yakima. YPD and the Department of Corrections will meet regularly and hope to have the problem under control within the next couple of years.
