Department Info:


In 1874, a small village on the shore of Commencement Bay incorporated as the City of Tacoma and appointed its first town marshal. Since then, we have grown to serve over 215,000 residents as an agency committed to community-oriented policing, relationship-building and reducing crime through effective partnerships. Our department is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies, which only five percent of agencies nationwide hold. The accreditation assures our policies and procedures, management, operations and support services meet the highest standards of contemporary law enforcement.

Benefits:


The City of Tacoma and the Tacoma Police Department are proud to provide its officers with competitive compensation packages, incentive pay, reimbursements, and a variety of insurance plans*. If you work as an officer elsewhere, you'll likely find it hard for the pay and benefits to compete with what we offer.
