Police Building

We, the Bainbridge Island Police Department, envision an island community free from crime or peril, whose citizens and police partners regard their Police Department as the finest in the world.


  • We shall challenge ourselves every day to exceed our community's expectations and conduct ourselves in a manner that earns respect.
  • We shall do the right thing at all times, and have the courage to do what needs to be done.
  • We shall ensure our community's safety and enforce the law without prejudice.
  • We shall perform to the best of our abilities and contribute to the development of the team.
  • We shall return home safely at the end of each day.

How Are we Doing?
Do you ever wonder what people think of you?  We do!  Since August, 2012, the BIPD has been mailing twenty surveys each month at random to people who have had interactions with us the previous month.  We are thrilled with the responses to date, which help us recognize what we do well and target areas that need improvement.  Special thanks go out to those who have taken the time to respond!   Here are our results to date.
