Department Organization

Snohomish Police Department
The Snohomish Police Department is a combined staff of civilian City employees and commissioned Sheriff's Deputies of various ranks. The City of Snohomish contracts with the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office for police services; the officers/deputies patrolling the city are sworn sheriff's deputies who are assigned to work exclusively as Snohomish patrol officers. While they may assist the Sheriff's Office with nearby emergency calls, their time is dedicated to working in and for the City of Snohomish.

The civilian staff at the police department (reception, records, community service) are all City of Snohomish employees who provide non-emergency services to city residents.
