Office of the
Chief of Police
City of Everett
On behalf of the men and women of the
Everett Police Department, I would like to welcome you to the Everett
Police Department website. We hope that this new and improved site is
informative and useful to you.
The Everett Police Department is a full-service, professional law
enforcement agency providing coverage twenty-four hours a day, three
hundred sixty-five days a year. Currently, there are one hundred
sworn police officers and twelve civilian support staff. In addition,
there are thirty crossing guards and an Auxiliary department made up
of fifteen officers who volunteer their time at community events. The
Everett Police Department makes use of college interns as well as
participating in the summer jobs program.
We are well positioned to address any and all public safety needs,
although we do rely on partnerships to provide the best possible
service to the people of Everett. Although most people see and have
contact with our Operations personnel, who are on the front lines
everyday responding to 911 calls and patrolling our streets, we have a
number of specialized services available to get the job done.
Today, the Everett Police Department has two K-9’s, a Special
Operations Unit, a Marine Unit, Underwater Search and Recovery teams,
truck and traffic enforcement unit and a cadre of officers with
extensive training and experience in areas such a crime prevention,
juvenile and gang issues, senior citizen issues, drug awareness and
prevention, information technology and crime analysis and intelligence
and much more.
In the post September 11th era in an effort to prepare for and combat
acts of terrorism, we have upgraded our equipment to include new state
of the art radios, pistols, patrol rifles, patrol vehicles and
motorcycles. Our officers have been trained and drilled in incident
command. They have been trained and equipped in Weapons of Mass
Destruction and have been outfitted with protective equipment. We are
in the process of opening a state of the art command center, which
will allow public safety and city personnel to manage any critical
incident. We are constantly planning for and preparing to combat any
and all forms of crime and disorder. Our emphasis will continue to be
on addressing the quality of life issues. We will do so with the
highest level of professionalism, dedication and excellence.
I am proud to say
that the men and women of the Everett Police Department are committed
to fighting crime, reducing fear and working with the community to
provide fair and equal treatment for all. We will continue to do our
best. As our motto says, “Serving With Pride Since 1870”.
