About Us

Marion Police Department is proud to serve one of the most picturesque and historic towns in Southwest Virginia. With an established record of excellence, our officers and staff work with the community and its elected representatives to ensure a safe environment for both residents and visitors. One traditional means of cooperation between our department and the citizens of Marion is often recalled. In the days before modern technology, a light was erected across from the courthouse at the top of Main Street. This light would be turned on when the officer on downtown duty needed to either call in or report to headquarters. When the officer was too busy to see the light come on, a good citizen would always inform him that he needed to report to headquarters. In this same spirit of cooperation, we ask that all you continue to help us with your suggestions, tips, and information by either emailing or telephoning our department, or by contacting any of our officers personally.
