The City of Redmond employs their own police department, unlike the City of Sammamish which contracts with the King County Sheriff's Office.
If you're arrested by a Redmond police officer on suspicion of DUI, you will be taken to the Redmond Police Department for a breath test. Processing and the court case will be filed in the King County District Court: Redmond division.
The City of Redmond Police Department is located in the City of Redmond municipal campus at 8701 160th Ave NE Redmond, WA 98052. The King County District Court- Northeast division is adjacent to the City of Redmond municipal campus at 8601 160th Ave NE.
You will usually be released after the breath test and booking process. You are not given a citation or notice of a court date, as a Redmond DUI charge is filed via investigation. The officer will complete their report and submit it to the City of Redmond Prosecutor for review and filing of charges. Once DUI charges are filed, the court sets an arraignment date and will mail out a notice.
