The administrative offices of the Bainbridge Island Police Department are only open 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 for help. Based on the information you provide, we will make an effort to monitor that area when possible. Part of the emphasis also may include placing a radar speed-reader in the area when we have one available, which helps remind some drivers of the posted limit.
Certain crimes can be reported to the Bainbridge Island Police online, but only if they meet the following three criteria:
1) The incident must have occurred within the Bainbridge Island city limits, and
2) There are no known suspects, and
3) The incident involves a harassing phone call, a hit and run, identity theft, lost property, misdemeanor incidents (as long as they don’t involve domestic violence, assault, or protection order violations and are not currently in progress), poor or unsafe road conditions, theft, theft from a vehicle, traffic issues, vandalism, or vandalism of a vehicle.
If the crime you wish to report meets these criteria, you can report it online by visiting the public safety citizens service portal, https://report.citizenserviceportal.com/Home/Agency?AgencyCode=BIPD. This service portal can also be used to provide information to a police officer related to a report he or she has already taken for you.
