How to report
If you or a loved one has experienced sexual abuse or harassment at a King County jail or youth detention center, there are multiple ways to report this.
Reports can be submitted verbally or in writing. The reporting party may choose to remain anonymous.
- Contact the King County Ombuds Office by phone or email:
- Notify any jail staff member. They are required to relay your allegation.
- Fill out a "kite". A kite is a form for written requests from inmates.
- Report the incident directly to police or an attorney.
