Crime Statistics

The citizens of Kittitas County approved a 3/10th of a penny sales tax to fund seven additional deputies, courthouse security and a law clerk. Today we have better visibility, quicker response times and a safer courthouse.

Through intelligence led/problem oriented policing we have kept a lid on property and violent crimes. Thanks to the citizens and law enforcement working together, we continue to have one of the lowest crime rates in the State.
