The Port Gamble Police Department is a "full service agency" that provides law enforcement and civil processing services to the Port Gamble S'Klallam Indian Reservation.

The Department consists of 12 commissioned officers and 3 reserve officers. We serve over 1,300 Tribal Members and residents of the approximately 1,700 acre reservation. The Port Gamble Police places a strong emphasis on community oriented policing for all residents and visitors.



The Mission of the Port Gamble Department of Public Safety is to protect Life and Property, to maintain order, to investigate crime, to enforce all applicable Laws and to assist community members on the Port Gamble S'Klallam Reservation while respecting the Culture, Jurisdiction, and Sovereignty of the Tribe and it's people.
