Our department includes over 38 sworn police officers, 15 correctional staff and a cadre of dedicated professional staff who all are committed to providing the highest level of service to our 40,000 residents and countless visitors to the city we call home.

We know that we must earn the trust and respect of our community each and every day. Our department works 24/7 to ensure that Issaquah is a safe and enjoyable place to live, visit and do business.
