We are morally and ethically aware, resolute, and above reproach, regardless of our duty status. We commit ourselves to the highest standards of trust, responsibility and discipline. We will promote justice in a fair and impartial manner. Whether observed or not, we will make the right decisions for the right reasons at the right time.
Professionalism is embodied in our commitment to proficiency, competency, reliability and excellence in all aspects of our performance and conduct. We reject complacency and are dedicated to pursuing the highest levels of knowledge, skill and expertise. We embrace the privilege of being community leaders and will lead by example through our commitment to duty and accountability to each other, our Department and our community.
We are committed to providing faithful and courageous police service to all. We have the courage to stand up for what we believe is right, and the courage to admit when we are wrong. We believe in placing duty before self and are willing to accept personal sacrifice for the greater good. Understanding what and who we represent, we take great pride in being part of the Everett Police Department.
Everett officers are fortunate to have a historically high level of administrative, mayoral, council and community support. An exceptional commitment to public safety sets the foundation for our City and department leaders who encourage a focus on community-oriented policing through countless engagement activities and events.
As the county seat, Everett is the largest city and the economic, financial, governmental, medical and cultural center for Snohomish County. With more than 100,000 residents, Everett is a short drive north from Seattle in one of the most beautiful regions of the United States. Everett is home to Boeing’s largest manufacturing facility and Naval Station Everett – the homeport for the aircraft carrier, USS Nimitz.
Our extensive shoreline contains the West Coast’s largest public marina and boasts excellent fishing, crabbing, boating and kite surfing. Year-round family activities also include summer and winter sports in the nearby Cascade Mountains or a short ferry ride to the scenic Olympic Peninsula.
Everett’s engaging city, community values and abundant recreational opportunities make it a great place to live, work, play and raise a family.
