[ARCHIVED] - Building Trust: Police Form Regional Team -

The Issaquah Police Department is a founding member of a new, regional law enforcement team that will investigate officer-involved shootings.

Called the King County Investigative Response Team (KCIRT), the group will ensure that thorough, objective and transparent investigations are conducted in a timely and professional manner.

The goal is to maintain community trust, and recognize best practices when investigating officer-involved shootings or other major incidents.

By pooling resources, the team maximizes the skills of the most experienced investigators and supervisors in our region, while also utilizing the latest technology and techniques.

KCIRT is available to any King County law enforcement agency that requests its services.

Along with Issaquah, the team includes law enforcement from Washington State Patrol and the King County Sheriff’s Office, as well as the cities of Bellevue, Kirkland, Redmond, Bothell, Mercer Island, Snoqualmie and Black Diamond.
