About the Department
The mission of the Woodinville Police Department is to be a trusted partner in fighting crime and improving the quality of life for our residents and guests. The Woodinville Police Department is committed to reducing crime and the fear of crime through proactive policing and patrol, traffic enforcement, community crime prevention education, compassionate and professional investigations, and other services to support residents and visitors.
The City of Woodinville has partnered with the King County Sheriff's Office for its police services since 1993. Our partnership with the King County Sheriff’s Office provides the framework and options around which Woodinville can tailor its own police department to suit its own local priorities and budget goals. Police staffing levels, crime emphasis, and proactive community programs are all determined entirely by the City of Woodinville. The benefit is gained by leveraging economies of scale with the King County Sheriff's Office patrol, investigations, and numerous specialty services.
The Woodinville Police Department consists of patrol officers, school resource officers, detectives, a police clerk who handles administrative support for the department including passport and concealed pistol permit processing, two sergeants, and a chief of police.
The Woodinville Police Department is very active and engaged in the community. Each year, WPD participates in a variety of service-oriented activities such as Shop-with-a-Cop and Toys for Tots. You will see the department is also active with education-based activities that include workshops and presentations for citizens and businesses, as well as community-based activities like Celebrate Woodinville and various programs at local schools.
