Hangar Reservation Policy is Changing

Not long ago in August 2017, the vision for a new Downtown Kenmore took a monumental leap forward with the grand opening of our new city building – The Hangar.  We envisioned the Hangar as the heartbeat to our Downtown, a vibrant, community gathering spot.  Since opening, it has indeed fulfilled that vision and is even more popular than we imagined.

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.  

Calling 911
