Stayton Police Department

The Stayton Police Department is a full-service police agency consisting of 13 sworn officers and 3 civilians lead by Chief of Police, Rich Sebens. Under his command, the Department is comprised of a Lieutenant, two Patrol Sergeants, a Detective, a School Resource Officer and eight Patrol Officers. The Department also employs one full-time and two part-time civilian employees who handle records, ordinance 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.  The most popular members of the Department, however, have four legs. They are narcotics K-9 Brodie, and retired narcotics K-9 Dallas.

We are fortunate to employ several highly trained officers with specialized skills, which include, but are not limited to:


  • Motor Patrol
  • Drug Recognition Expert
  • Firearms Instructors
  • Emergency Vehicle Operations Instruction
  • ORPAT Instruction / Physical Fitness
  • Building Search Instruction
  • Force on Force Instruction
  • Taser Instruction
  • Standard Response Protocol Instruction (“I Love U Guys” Foundation)

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.
