Guidance for Calling 911 or Non-Emergency Line

Should I call 911 or the King County Sheriff's Office Non-Emergency Number?

You may know this already, but police services in Kenmore are handled by a contract with the King County Sheriff's Office (KCSO). We have 12 officers assigned to the Kenmore Police Department and they know our community well. When you need something from Kenmore Police, your requests go to the King County Dispatch Center.
