Election Day Safety
As Tuesday, November 3rd approaches, SPD encourages the community to have eyes and ears out for any suspicious activity related to voting stations and ballot boxes. Report any activity immediately to election officers or law enforcement, avoid confrontations and call 911 right away if the safety of anyone in or around a polling location is in jeopardy.

Ballot drop boxes are located at the Spokane County Courthouse – one in front and one behind at the Spokane County Election’s Office, most town halls in the county, and in front of all public libraries.

Early Storm Puts City Services in Motion
Pitching In Helps Everyone
Last week's snow storm reminded us that it's not too early to make sure neighborhood street drains are clear of debris, snow and ice.
Sign of Security
The City is taking the final steps to make sure downtown Spokane’s new police precinct is a fully functional reality. On the outside, new signage to boost police presence and let people know where they can find help. Just inside, visitors will find a desk officer, who is ready to address the concerns of anyone who works, lives or plays downtown.
