Employment Information

The Sequim Police Department is made up of proactive men and women who are dedicated to making a positive impact on our community.  Sequim is very law enforcement friendly.  Officers work a 4-10 schedule with three days off; all are assigned take home patrol cars, are issued modern equipment, and work out of a newly built, state of the art, police department.

We believe the department must represent the community and the community must have a stake in its police services.  Ours is a diverse group of paid officers, volunteer officers, paid support staff, and volunteer support staff.  We invite anyone to join us in making Sequim a great and safe place to live, work, or visit.
