Staff and Community Liaison Officers

The core staff of the Sector is comprised of a Lieutenant, four Community Liaison Officers (CLO’s), and a Detective.  They are directly supported by two Tacoma Police Business Improvement Area (BIA) Officers who primarily patrol the downtown area on bicycles.  Sector 1 is further supported by the Patrol Division and other bureaus within the Police Department.  Their mission is to identify, recognize, and address a wide variety of citizen concerns within the Sector.  They work closely and collaboratively with neighborhood groups, individual citizens, business owners, city staff, and other organizations.

The Sector 1 staff is committed to long term problem solving, improving the quality of life within the Sector, and enhancing and supporting economic development.  Because of a vast array of new building projects that have been completed or are currently underway, the central district of Tacoma has once again become a more vibrant, exciting, and safe place to live and work.  Officers who work in the sector are proud to serve their community and proud of their accomplishments.
