Located just 35 minutes west of Seattle by ferry, Bainbridge Island is a community rich in history, culture and natural beauty, and is enjoyed by residents and visitors alike. A wonderful combination of farms, wineries, hiking trails and local arts welcomes visitors year round. Despite the City's growth from a small town of 2 square miles and 3,147 people to the entire 28 square miles of the island and a population of 22,000, Bainbridge Island has managed to preserve its friendly aura, island life charm, and natural environment. While quality commercial and governmental services are a necessary element of modern day life, the natural features which drew the original settlers to this area remain the most important attractions for today's residents. Balancing growth and development, while maintaining Bainbridge Island's unique blend of open space and natural beauty, are a high priority for the island's citizens.
Bainbridge Island Police Department is committed to excellence. We partner with the community to promote safety in our neighborhoods, schools, and the business community. We have 31 full-time employees and little turn-over in employment.
