Precinct 3

Precinct 3


Precinct 3 covers a geographical area of approximately 700 square miles. Interstate 90 is the northern boundary for the precinct, and the cities of Renton, Kent, and Auburn border the western side of the precinct. The eastern boundary extends into the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest, and the southern boundary ends at the Pierce County line.  Precinct 3 facilities are located in the City of Maple Valley.


The cities of Covington, Maple Valley and Newcastle, the Town of Beaux Arts Village, and the Muckleshoot Tribal Police hold contracts for police services with the King County Sheriff’s Office. Precinct 3 provides school resource officers to the Auburn, Issaquah, Renton, and Tahoma school districts and the Muckleshoot Tribal School.


Due to restrictions put in place by the King County Executive and Washington State Governor, limited services have been implemented.
At this time, we are only providing fingerprint services for Concealed Pistol License applications. Please check back for updates for this service.
Our community room is now available to book for public use.
