The administrative offices of the Bainbridge Island Police Department are open to the public Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., but police officers are on duty around the clock. If you want to speak to a police officer for any reason, even during regular business hours, please dial 911 regardless of whether the situation is an emergency or not. Officers are usually out on the road and are dispatched through the radio call center at Kitsap911. If you are calling from outside the county, dial 360-308-5400.
To request a copy of a police report or to make any other public records request, simply visit the City of Bainbridge Island's public records request portal and follow the prompts.
To pick up evidence, found property, or items we have for safekeeping, you must make an appointment. Call 206-780-4673 or email our Evidence Technician to arrange one.
Unfortunately scams of all kinds are on the rise and criminals use every means imaginable. If you have been defrauded, there is no shame in it - crooks are getting very savvy. Call 911 and tell the dispatcher it's not an emergency. Your call will be prioritized accordingly and a BIPD officer will contact you to take a report.
If you were lucky enough or savvy enough to avoid being scammed, the BIPD cannot take a report because there was no loss, but you can still report the incident by contacting Attorney General’s Office. They collect the data and use it in their efforts to combat fraud.
To report a collision in Kitsap County, you have one of three options:
1) Call 911 when it happens;
2) Call 911 after the fact and dispatch will attempt to send an officer to meet you at home or work (if on-island) to get the details and write a report. Tell the dispatcher it's not an emergency. This is not always a good option, because on-duty officers need to prioritize calls for service and an after-the-fact collision is not high priority.
3) Report the collision online through Washington State Patrol. Visit http://www.wsp.wa.gov/driver/collision-records/
The BIPD established a Traffic Emphasis program to help combat speeding in residential neighborhoods. All you have to do is call the station at 206-842-5211 or email us email@example.com to request help. Based on the information you provide, we will install a mobile speed reader sign to monitor the traffic and officers will pay special attention to that area when they are able. In general, they only have the opportunity to focus on speeding or distracted drivers when there are no urgent calls pending, but they do what they can. Someone from our department will follow up with you in about 30 days to discuss the results of our efforts.
