Where does the Sheriff have jurisdiction?
The Sheriff is the highest law enforcement officer in Yakima County. However, most effort is concentrated in the unincorporated areas of the county and those incorporated areas with no law enforcement agency (Naches, Harrah, etc.) The Sheriff's Office respects the boundaries of the areas with a law enforcement agency.
