The City of Kirkland purchased an existing “big box” warehouse building to convert into a civic facility where the Municipal Courts and their expanded Police Department are co-located. This allowed for growing capacity demands, due to recent annexation of nearly 30,000 residents from unincorporated King County. The project includes two separate and dedicated lobby spaces, community multi-use spaces, and the Kirkland Municipal Court. The police program serves a police staff of 155. Support spaces include a forensic lab, evidence processing and storage, an 8-lane firearms proficiency range, an 85 bed jail, sally port, vehicle maintenance bays, fitness and locker rooms.
