About the Kirkland Justice Center


To better serve the needs of Kirkland’s burgeoning population of 80,000 residents, the City developed a site to house both the Municipal Court and the Police Department.  The Kirkland Justice Center functions as a base for court, police, and corrections services and is centrally located in the Totem Lake Business District. The 102,000 square foot building was transformed from a furniture store into an essential public safety facility. The City purchased the building in 2010 and it was determined that renovating the building was less expensive than designing and constructing a new one.

The Kirkland Municipal Court occupies the south facing portion of the complex and includes two large courtrooms, one small courtroom, a spacious lobby, Judge’s chambers, and staff offices. The physical address for the Kirkland Municipal Court is 11740 NE 118th Street with the entrance on the east side facing I-405.
