News Release
Redmond Police Officers Encounter Aggressive Off Leash Dogs While Investigating Stolen Property - 06/22/22

On June 21, 2022, at approximately 8:00 p.m., Redmond Police Department officers were approached by several aggressive off leash dogs while investigating reports of a stolen trailer and its contents on property east of 17th Street in Redmond.  The interaction resulted in two of the aggressive off leash dogs being shot. 

The detectives where in the process of attempting to contact occupants of a houseless camp near the location where the reported stolen property was located when they were confronted by two off leash aggressive dogs.  One of the detectives unsuccessfully attempted to separate himself from the dogs, and fired shots at one of the dogs, which later died.   

A short time later a third off leash and aggressive dog ran towards the detective.  The dog owner and another person attempted to gain control of the dog without success.  The detective shot at the dog, which fled.  The status of this dog is currently unknown.  Officers stayed on scene and buried the deceased dog for the owner. 

RPD will conduct a review of the entirety of the incident (from initial call response to conclusion).  Findings will be presented to the captain and chief for review.  The incident will also be presented to the District Attorney’s Office for review per policy.
