  • Identification of additional lost or stolen property after an initial report has been made

Trespass Authorization Program

The City of Kent offers business owners an opportunity to be involved in a Trespass Enforcement Authorization Program. This partnership provides the Kent Police Department authorization to question and handle persons who may be unlawfully occupying the property during non business hours.  This program DOES NOT increase the police patrolling of your property. To enroll you must complete a trespass authorization form and purchase "No Trespass" signs specific to the Kent City Code. The signs are sold at $25.00 a piece by the Kent Police Foundation. For more information, or to access the form, click here.

Victim Assistance Information

Kent Police strongly believes that crime victims and witnesses must be afforded rights to protect them from criminal activity. The Information Assistance pamphlet outlines some of the protections afforded by law. The pamphlet is available in several languages.
