Junk & Abandoned Vehicle Inspection

Under certain circumstances the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office will send a Deputy to your property for a junk or abandoned vehicle inspection. Prior to requesting an inspection it is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the law under RCW 46.55.010 in regards to what constitutes a junk vehicle. It is also your responsibility to comply with the additional requirements under RCW 46.55.230 in regards to notifications.

These requirements are also listed on the Washington Department of Licensing Junk Vehicle Affidavit (PDF) page. 

If you wish to request a Deputy respond to your property to perform a junk/abandoned vehicle inspection, please visit the Forms and Documents page here and select the "Junk Vehicle Request Form".  A help document is available to assist you. Once the forms are completed, or for assistance, contact our dispatch center at (360)-344-9779, ext 0.
