beaux-arts-logoBeaux Arts Village is a town of roughly 300 residents, completely surrounded by the City of Bellevue. King County Sheriff's Office deputies serving nearby unincorporated areas routinely patrol the town, respond to emergency calls in the community, and enforce the town's solicitor ordinances. Supervision, detectives, and support are provided by the Sheriff's Office precinct station located in Maple Valley.

The Sheriff's Marine Unit also provides marine policing services to the town, patrolling waters to the west of the town and enforcing no-wake and speeding laws. The Marine Unit's work also includes maintenance and replacement of the town's buoys.


BAV_marine "Our Sheriff's Marine Unit proudly serves as the water patrol for the town of Beaux Arts. As a young Sheriff’s deputy I patrolled Beaux Arts daily during the early 1980s, and I have always had a strong connection with the community.

Now as the Marine Unit supervisor, I have a great team of dedicated marine deputies that continue to work with the community to improve the marine safety and enjoyment of the Village's unique waterfront. 
Recently, we have been working to improve the signed no-wake zone. This change was significant to improving compliance of most boaters who pass through the East Channel, making the water safer for everyone."
