Your Role in Crime Prevention | Maple Valley Police Department

As a city of Maple Valley business owner/manager you are an important element in our community when it comes to crime prevention. By protecting your property and recognizing suspicious activity we continue to keep this community a safer place to live.

We encourage you to report all incidents to the Maple Valley Police Department. Of course if something is in progress, call 911. Otherwise, please do not think that any other non-emergency incident is too small to report.

In addition, the department has an active Problem Solving Emphasis Team that consists of two plain-clothed detectives. The purpose of the PSET unit is to investigate drug and vice crimes, assist patrol officers and conduct investigations within the city focusing on solving recurring problems.

There is a couple of ways to report a non-emergency or not in progress call:

• Dial 206-296-3311 o This is 24 hour non-emergency number to our dispatch center. Your report will either be taken by a call taker or an on-duty Maple Valley Police Officer will contact you.

o This is the online reporting system. You will be able to report your incident without waiting and be able to print a copy of the approved report. Please visit the site for additional instructions and provisions.
