The City of SeaTac has a population of over 25,000 residents. SeaTac International Airport is located entirely within the city boundaries. This creates very special demands for police services in the community.
SeaTac has contracted with the Sheriff's Office since incorporation in 1990. Their Police Chief oversees the activities of a 62-person force that includes patrol officers, detectives, and support staff. The city may also rely on the Sheriff's Office response for specialized services such as major crimes or major accident investigations.
