Washington State Patrol's Enumclaw Detachment Relocates to New Facility for Enhanced Community ServiceSource: Washington State Patrol

The Washington State Patrol (WSP) detachment in Enumclaw, a staple of the community for over 50 years, has recently relocated from its longstanding headquarters. The detachment made its move from a shared space with the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) on 333 Griffin Ave to a new address at 2479 Griffin Ave. This changeover was driven by the growth and expanding needs of both the WSP and WSDOT, according to the Washington State Patrol.

As detailed in a recently released statement, the WSP Enumclaw Detachment, comprised of five troopers and one sergeant, had outgrown the joint facility. Hence, the decision to transition to a dedicated space for WSP operations was deemed necessary. The move is expected to allow for better service to the community, with these officers remaining responsible for responding to service calls and performing traffic enforcement on vital routes such as SR 410 from Enumclaw to Mt. Rainier and the unincorporated stretches of SR 169 and SR 164 connecting Black Diamond/Enumclaw with Auburn/Enumclaw.

More information on the specifics of the move can be found in the official press release issued by the WSP. It provides insight into planning, logistics, and the operational enhancements anticipated from the relocation, as per the Washington State Patrol.
