"Stay at Home" Compliance Complaints

In a press conference on March 30, Governor Inslee again requested "non-essential" businesses and citizens to comply with the stay at home order.

The Washougal Police Department’s response to these types of complaints, if received, is through education. We will inform citizens and businesses they need to comply with the order and the reasons for the compliance.

If a complaint is regarding a non-compliant business, please file a complaint via the Washington State online complaint form available here.

If you are filing a complaint on an individual or private group (non-business) with an officer, please contact our police department @ 360.835.8701
