Construction of the Douglas County Law and Justice Center has been completed and as such the departments previously housed at the 2nd Street location will be relocated to 100 19thSt, NW effective November 5th. Effected departments are the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Douglas County District Court (East Wenatchee), and Probation Services. Please note that the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office and Probation Services will be closed to the public November 1 and November 4 and the Douglas County District Court (East Wenatchee) will be closed October 31, November 1, and November 4. All offices will be open for business on November 5, 2019.
This new 17,898 square foot facility will provide greatly improved public access, upgraded IT capabilities, and will serve to create a more unified service center as it is collocated with the existing Douglas County Public Services Building. Douglas County was able to significantly reduce the long-term cost of the Law and Justice Center though responsible budgeting practices, such as cash payment for much on the construction and achieving a credit rating upgrade.
To mark the momentous accomplishment, Douglas County will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony with a self-guided tour of the facility to follow. The ceremony will be held on November 4, 2019 at 2 pm. Light refreshments will be provided.
