The Bainbridge Island Police Department is committed to providing accurate and timely information to those we serve. If you have questions, or are looking for certain data you can't find, send us an email and we'll do our best to get it for you.

BIPD Policy

Good policy is the foundation for public safety operations. It is a critical component that ensures fairness, consistency, and provides guidance for police response. Bainbridge Island Police Department policies are based on national standards and best practices, comply with state and federal laws, and comply with court rulings. Our policy manual is continuously reviewed and updated and the practices of the department are reviewed for compliance with those policies.

Performance Measures

Here are tables showing information tracked on specific types of crimes, events, and occurrences that we call 'performance measures.' Information for the current year is updated quarterly. If you want to look at older information, let us know and we'll be happy to provide those measures as well:

Professional Standards Reports

At the end of each year, the Bainbridge Island Police Department issues a publication called a Professional Standards Report which provides an overview of department operations, changes in personnel, a summary of outreach efforts, performance measures, a review and analysis of complaints, uses of force, officer-involved collisions, and bias-based policing.  (This document was formerly called an Annual Report.)  The publication also includes highlights regarding to training and professional development, notable events and more. 

Customer Survey Program

Since 2012, the BIPD has been sending out 20 surveys at random each month to individuals who had contact with a member of the department during the previous month.  The intent of the survey is to give the citizens we serve an opportunity to evaluate how we’re doing. Respondents are provided with a postage paid return envelope and survey answers are anonymous.  The response rate continues to be encouraging and we thank everyone who received a survey and took the time to respond. Your feedback helps us recognize our successes and identify areas that need improvement. Results for the current year are updated quarterly.

* In 2020, no surveys were mailed in May or June.  This was due in part to a reduced number of calls for service and a purposefully reduced number of self-generated interactions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, although responses continued to arrive based on surveys sent earlier in the year.  The practice of mailing surveys began again in July.
