Please call 911 if you have an emergency. If you have a non-emergency and need an officer to respond or would like to file a police report, you can reach our Dispatch Center at 425-486-1254.
You may request a copy of a police report by completing a Public Records Request form. You may access a fillable PDF of the form at https://www.cityoflfp.gov/371/Public-Records-Requests. Complete the form, save it to your computer, and email it to the email address on the form. You may also come to City Hall to get a copy of the form. A completed Public Records Request form will be accepted by fax, e-mail, or by dropping the form off at the police records window upstairs or the reception desk on the first floor.

If you are a resident of the City of Lake Forest Park, you can turn in your firearm(s) to the Police Department. However, many citizens do not realize that their firearms may be collectible and thus valuable, or are just worth money on their own if they were sold or consigned to be sold through a reputable firearms dealer. There are many dealers that can facilitate the buying outright or consigning your firearm(s). Cabela’s Gun Library - Marysville, DJ’s Loan & Sport – Bothell, and AMS Guns – Woodinville are local examples. If the decision is to turn in a firearm to the Police Department, it is strongly recommended to call the PD first 206-364-8216 and make an appointment with the Support Officer. Any firearm brought to the PD must be unloaded, and if a semi-automatic, the slide should be locked back in the open position with no magazine inserted in the magazine well. Additionally, any magazines should not have ammunition inserted in them as well.
Begin by carefully reading your infraction or camera ticket. You must respond to the infraction within thirty (30) days from the violation date. A failure to respond will result in the suspension of your driver’s license, further penalties, and collections. Respond by completing the information in the box in the upper right corner of the infraction and either mailing the infraction to the court or bringing it in person to the court clerk's office. Please see the Municipal Court webpage for more information on paying or contesting an infraction or camera ticket.
