Use of Force in Policing — Everett Police Department’s Practices

The Everett Police Department is aware that the community is seeking information on our use of force practices. We have created a webpage that includes an important message from the Chief of Police, answers common use of force questions, and posts our policies for review.



Everett Police reminds the public not to call 911 to report violations of the governor’s order or social distancing violations. 911 must be reserved for those needing immediate emergency assistance.

Everett residents may report violation concerns.
(NOTE: Submitted complaints and messages may be subject to public disclosure requests.)

Concerns about businesses violating the order can also be directly reported the Governors office.
