The City of Marina restructured its public safety services delivery in 2007 from being a Public Safety Department with the police and fire services combined, to having its own separate Police and Fire Department.
Now known as the Marina Police Department, we currently staff the department with 29 sworn officers and eight non-sworn personnel. The current authorized staffing for sworn officers is:
