INDEPENDENT FORCE INVESTIGATION TEAM-KING COUNTY

In 2019, the state legislature passed the “Law Enforcement Training and Community Safety Act” (LETSCA). Part of LETSCA requires that all police uses of force that results in death, substantial bodily harm, or great bodily harm be investigated completely independent of the involved agency. In conjunction with regional law enforcement partners, the Clyde Hill Police Department is working to establish an independent investigation team which will be called the “Independent Force Investigation Team-King County” (IFIT-KC). IFIT-KC will investigate the use of police deadly force that occurs within Clyde Hill / Yarrow Point and the jurisdictions of the partner agencies. The goal is to enhance accountability and increase transparency and trust between law enforcement and the community. The IFIT-KC conducts the investigation in the same manner as a criminal investigation. The IFIT-KC will consist of qualified and certified law enforcement investigators and at least two non-law enforcement Community Representatives. The IFIT-KC will operate completely independently of any involved agency's internal investigation to conduct a criminal investigation of police use of deadly force incidents.
 
For more details, including instructions on how to apply to be a Community Representative, please see the citizen letter below. The deadline to apply is August 15, 2021. If you have any questions, please contact Chief Kyle Kolling at 425-454-7187 or police@clydehill.org.

IFIT Citizen Letter


The Clyde Hill Police Department responds to approximately 5,000 calls for service each year. The City's crime index, a measure of the crime rate per thousand citizens, is one of the lowest in the state and does not include a high rate of serious crimes like robbery, assault, or rape. In 2011, Clyde Hill officers issued about 1,000 infractions, responded to over 2,000 house watch requests, investigated 36 DUIs and assisted neighboring departments with crime in their communities on 238 occasions.

A key tool the Clyde Hill Police Department uses to detect and deter crime is general patrol. Collectively the officers drive approximately 30 thousand miles in the community each year. In conjunction with general patrol, a heavy emphasis on traffic enforcement is provided, which improves the safety of the community and heightens police visibility. Bicycle Officers are also deployed during the spring and summer months, as well as during community events, in an ongoing effort to deter criminal behavior, enforce traffic, and increase interaction between community members and the police.

The Police Department is committed to working closely with the citizens of Clyde Hill and Yarrow Point and is anxious to respond to the needs and desires of the community. The department believes this will be accomplished by fostering a relationship of trust, respect and understanding.
