Richland Police Department

Richland is served by a very capable police department and Police Chief Chris Skinner.  The Richland Police Department is located at 871 George Washington Way, Richland, WA  99352 and their phone number is 509-942-7340.  The city of Richland has a population of over 53,000 people and this requires an organized department to operate properly.  

The Richland Police Department is divided into the Field Operations Division and Support Operations Division, with an additional piece; the Administrative Services.  Field Operations involve 74% of the department and 43 officers necessary for the duties and responsibilities; 4 patrol squads, one street crimes unit, traffic unit, and violent crime task force.  Patrol units rotate night and day shifts every 6 weeks and work 12 hour shifts (first responders) and 911 callers will be attended to swiftly.  The Street Crimes Unit handles narcotics and warrants (officers are in casual clothes).  Traffic units help patrol units with enforcing DUI and traffic rules.  

The Support Operations include evidence, property, investigations, and records, as well as a Metro Drug Task Force.  The Investigations Unit delves into over 700 cases per year and the detective assigned to a case can be contacted for more details.  The Evidence and Property Unit contains thousands of items that have been pieces of evidence or past property.  Evidence technicians deal with the processing of evidence and fingerprinting individuals involved in cases; lab analysis duties.  The Records Section has arrest warrants, police reports, and orders that were officially issued.  Warrants can be detailed if someone contacts the Richland Police Department Records Unit.  They also issue concealed pistol licenses and provide fingerprinting services.  The Metro Drug Task Force is a Tri-CIty initiative that cracks down on high risk drug dealers.  Administrative services include training and grants for the department.

The main jail for Richland is the Benton County Sheriff’s Office Bureau of Corrections that operates Benton County Jail and is located at 7122 W. Okanogan Place (Building B), Kennewick, Washington.  Their phone number is (509) 783-1451 and the jail holds 600 inmates at any time with a capacity for 800 people.  Richland has a series of thefts and this is the most frequent crime in the city.  The department has a number of valuable resources suggested for victims of domestic violence and sexual abuse, as well as tips for prevention of crimes.  Emergencies are to be reported to 911 and not the non-emergency dispatch number.
