King County Sheriff’s Office to close Kenmore precinct Dec. 5

The King County Sheriff’s Kenmore and Maple Valley precincts will be closing their doors to the public starting Dec. 5. These precincts will be combined with other facilities in the next few weeks.

The closure is part of an effort by the Sheriff’s Office to save money and move deputies closer to the citizens and communities they serve. Sheriff Sue Rahr estimates that the moves will save King County taxpayers more than $8 million over the next 20 years by closing these facilities. 

“We are saving money, strengthening our relationships with our contract city partners, and improving our access and visibility for the benefit of the citizens of King County,” noted Rahr. 

Anyone who uses the Kenmore precinct may go to the Shoreline precinct for fingerprinting and concealed-pistol licenses. Shoreline provides these services on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays by appointment only. The Shoreline Station is located at 1206 N. 185th St. Residents can make appointments by calling (206) 801-2710.
