"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. He also stated, "These are local decisions" and emphasized, "We're not going to tell law enforcement how to do their jobs." This leaves the Clark County Sheriff's Office to determine how they assist in compliance with this order.
Our main 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 a deputy, please contact our West Precinct desk phone number 564.397.6079.
