The Tank crushing the smash car at National Night Out 2018!

2018 National Night Out. The Tank coming into the town to Wixon Park!

Thank you Selah Community for another Great National Night Out! We would also like to thank all of the other agencies/clubs that came out to participate and the local business that donated time, food, drinks & the smash car! Without all of you, National Night Out would not be the wonderful community event it is. So much fun to watch the tank crush the smash car! We look forward to seeing you all next year!

Had a great time at the Guns & Hoses Golf Tournament at River Ridge Sponsored by Christina Williams, Farmers Insurance. Such a fun event bringing Police & Fire together & it supported Rods House.

It’s Finally National Night Out, TODAY!! Come out to Wixson Park from 6pm-8:30pm and have a great time! See you there!

The Selah Police Department had the honor of being part of the “Tribute to Fallen Soldiers Memorial Torch Ride” along with the Yakima Police Department and the Yakima County Sheriffs. We drove through Selah, passing by John Campbell where all the summer school kids come out with flags and cheered the escort along. We continued on to the home of our local Selah fallen hero Capt. Aaron R. Blanchard, to remember him & honor his family with a Memorial Plaque of Distinguished Service. The Tribute to Fallen Soldiers traveled from Joint Base Lewis McCord to Benton City that day, honoring Fallen Hero’s along the way. In all, they will travel the country over the next month making a total of (62) stops to Fallen Soldiers homes. The ride will ultimately reach Washington D.C. and extinguish the Memorial Flame on Sunday August 5th inside of Arlington National Cemetery. This is a wonderful group of caring individuals that give their time to honor those who gave their lives. We are Thankful to have been a part of their journey.

It’s that time of year, National Night Out is August 7th, the first Tuesday of the month! This is a free event for the community, come out & join us for a great evening!

The Selah Police Department had fun participating in the 2018 Hot Rods On First Street, by giving out an award for the vehicle that was “most likely to get a ticket”. Thank you for being a great sport Lyndee, your 2015 Dodge Challenger is a beautiful vehicle!

2018 Selah Community Days "Seas The Day" Parade was a great time! Aerial photo credit to Jerald Smith

Had a great day at the Selah Intermediate School for the 5th Grade Career Day presentation in the morning. Then we went to John Campbell to surprise Mrs. Mercer’s 2nd Grade Class with a special presentation because of their 101 Class Wide Pride Awards! That’s pretty awesome, Congratulations!

We all had a Great time at the 1st Annual Selah Police (Superheroes) vs Selah Fire Department Softball Game. It was a close one, but Police won 34-33! See you next year Fire!

This thankful Thursday goes out to the important people behind the scenes that you don't see! Thank you so much to the dispatchers, for being the ones who are answering the 911 lines, giving instructions while listening to the cries and remaining calm, all while sending the appropriate units for help and making sure that those responding are safe. It takes a heart of gold, which is why it is so fitting that it's the thin Gold line that holds the Red, White and Blue together.

Introducing our newest officer! Chris Morales graduated from the Academy yesterday! (Center)

Members of the Selah Police Department want to reassure the public we have, and will continue to place their safety in highest regard. We have been made aware of the recent on line threat to “SHS”. This threat is not taken lightly. Every resource to combat threats and or actions like this will continue to be met with an appropriate response, by the police department. While this particular threat has been deemed not credible, we still want to take time to reassure our citizens and students we are watching out for their safety. Additionally, we want to thank the public for the overwhelming calls to report this matter. Here at the Selah Police Department we believe the bond between the police department, school district and the community we serve is strong. We want to maintain and further cultivate that partnership.

Thank You Nehemiah for bringing us donuts, not once, but twice today. After he stopped by the first time & found out we had a training day with more officers at the PD, he told his dad that they didn’t get enough donuts, so they went & got more & brought them back! Such a thoughtful young man, made all our day!

Good Luck at State Selah’s High School Swim & Wrestling Teams!
