Message from the Chief

Chief Erik ScairponWelcome! Our City is looking for servant-minded police officers, custody officers, and professional staff who want to step up every day and contribute honorably to their community. Whether protecting our community through crime prevention and proactive police work, addressing a neighborhood problem, or de-escalating a behavioral health situation, you will be playing a vital role in the criminal justice process; we are looking for the next generation of community leaders to step up to the call.

Marysville is a fast-growing city that provides excellent wages while allowing our staff to find affordable housing within reasonable commuting distances, including in town. As the second-largest municipality in Snohomish County, we offer a "just-right" selection of career opportunities and room for advancement while maintaining a regional focus with our resources. Your command staff cares about our people and focuses on improving operations, staff wellness, and concentrating on the professional development of our team and support during challenging times. You are supported by a foundation of a thankful community that appreciates the work its officers and police staff do. City leadership reinforces this support through advocacy for resources and support for the department. This includes your elected leaders and the City Council. You will find a uniquely positive environment that will work to support your career. 

We think it will be an easy decision for you to select a job at the Marysville Police Department as your career of choice. You will be joining a team committed to providing outstanding service in partnership with our community to enhance our City's safety, growth and livability.
