Spokane County Crime Prevention Office at the Valley Mall

Go to the main mall entrance on the West side. Take the escalators upstairs and turn to your left. We are next to Silver Safari and the children's play area. We are open Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm, and sometimes on Saturdays, but please call to be sure we are available if you need to meet with someone. If for some reason you don't find the door open, we hope you will understand that volunteers staff the front desk and sometimes are not able to make it due to illness or other commitments.
