All complaints will be followed up with communication with the establishment that may include onsite inspections. Please note that the King County Tobacco Prevention Program is only authorized to enforce the no-smoking law with owners or other persons in charge of an establishment for failure to prohibit smoking in an area under their control (such as an outside patio, seating area, bus shelter, etc). If you witness smoking done in an area that is not under the control of an establishment (such as a sidewalk, alleyway, etc.) please notify your local police department using their non-emergency number.
