The Department also employs one full-time and three part-time civilian employees who handle records, code enforcement and evidence responsibilities.

In addition to our paid staff, the Stayton Police Department has several dedicated volunteers. We have a reserve police officer program, volunteer office staff and volunteers who handle ordinance complaints. We are fortunate to employ several highly trained officers with specialized skills, which include, but are not limited to:

The Stayton Police Department is proud to serve in community events throughout the year such as Coffee with a Cop, National Night Out, and the Junior Police Fishing Derby. During Summerfest our officers get wet participating in “Dunk a Cop," which raises money for our K-9 program.  


The Police Department is located at 386 N. 3rd Ave. with access to law enforcement 24 hours a day. Our records staff is available Monday-Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. The office is closed between 1:00 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. for lunch.


We are not equipped with a jail but do have a short term holding facility. Upon arrest, suspects are transported to the Marion County Jail located at 4000 Aumsville Hwy SE in Salem. If you have questions regarding an inmate’s status, please call the Marion County Jail at (503) 588-8595.


Our staff is always waiting to serve you. Please never hesitate to call us or stop by. We strive to provide excellent law enforcement services.
