Des Moines is a small waterfront community located midway between Seattle and Tacoma in Washington State. Our community was homesteaded by a group from Des Moines, Iowa and we share the same name.
Des Moines has numerous beaches and public parks on the shores of Puget Sound. We offer housing opportunities for every income level and the city is continually seeking new business and development opportunities. The city’s marina is right next door to our small-town shopping district. Our fishing piers, beach park and boardwalk are premier places to stroll as the sun sets behind the majestic Olympic Mountains. The residential population of Des Moines is 30,000, home to Highline College, and industrial center and several retirement homes with views of Puget Sound.
The Des Moines Police Department or “DMPD” is very proud to start our first year in the Pink Patch Project! Our department consists of a staff of 48 Commissioned Officers and non commissioned team members. Our police programs include: K-9, Drones, SRO, Animal Control, Code Enforcement Street Crimes and SWAT members. Our team is committed to relentlessly fighting crime with trust and care.
Our first year patch proceeds will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation
