End of Watch: Sgt. Joseph Deccio, Yakima Police Department

It is with heavy hearts that we extend our deepest condolences to the family, friends, and brothers & sisters in law enforcement for the loss of Sergeant Joseph Deccio, a 15-year veteran of the Yakima Police Department. Joe died in the line of duty on August 3rd after experiencing a significant medical episode.

A Yakima native, Deccio worked for the department for 15 years, serving as a patrol officer, leader of Yakima SWAT’s sniper team, coordinator for the K-9 units and school resource officers, as well as a field training officer. He was a corporal in the Army National Guard and deployed to Iraq as a cavalry scout with the 81st Brigade.

The Yakima Police Patrolman’s Association has set up a donation account for Deccio’s family, including his wife, 10-year-old son and 13-year-old son to help them in their time of need. Anyone interested in donating to the Sgt. Joe Deccio Memorial Fund can do so at any HomeStreet Bank branch, the Yakima Police Department (200 South 3rd Street), or through Venmo by clicking on a QR code on the department’s Facebook page at the following link.
