Yarnall known for police officer reputation

Dear Editor,

Jason Yarnall, featured in a recent student spotlight, was well known to a generation of Sonoma State students of the mid 2000s. As a Cotati police officer, Yarnall, whose sole duty was traffic law enforcement, preyed upon and cited students who navigated the speed trap on East Cotati Avenue from Cotati to the campus and back.

Such citations typically added $200 or more to the students’ already mounting expenses while adding to the City of Cotati’s coffers.

Joseph Kessel is a resident of Cotati.
