City of Yelm Seeks Volunteers for Community Representatives

We have a dedicated and committed Police Department who is continually focused on enhancing accountability and increasing trust between law enforcement officers in Yelm and our community. As part of this ongoing effort and in accordance with state law, the City of Yelm is seeking volunteers who are not affiliated with any law enforcement agency to serve on an Independent Investigations Team (IIT). We are creating these volunteer positions in response to the Law Enforcement Training and Community Safety Act (also known as I-940) which is a state law enacted by Washington State voters. Volunteers on the IIT would be called upon to independently analyze any incident or event involving a significant use of force. Community Representatives would be responsible for participating in various required training relevant to the responsibilities of this position.
