Increased security presence in the Administration Building

Beginning Monday, January 23, there will be increased security presence in the Administration Building. Facilities Management Division (FMD) security officers will be permanently assigned to posts at both the 4th Avenue and 5th Avenue entrances. These officers will also patrol the Administration Building and respond to calls for assistance.

These positions come from a request for additional security in the Administration Building. In response, FMD sought additional funds in the 2017-2018 budget to increase the security presence in the Administration Building to be equitable with the other large buildings in the Downtown Campus. This request was approved by the King County Council. During the next several months, permanent security posts will also be placed within the building. FMD is glad to provide this increased level of service.
