WELCOME TO THE MARION POLICE DEPARTMENT
department is proud to serve one of the most picturesque and historic towns
in Southwest Virginia. Home of the
legendary Hungry Mother State Park as well as many other industries and
hosts a large number of visitors each year. 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
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 you continue to help us with your suggestions, tips, and
information by either e-mailing or telephoning our department, or by
contacting any of our officers personally.
Marion Police Department will strive to deliver the most effective level of
police service and protection to enhance the quality of life for the
citizens of the Town of Marion.
This goal will be accomplished by fostering positive community
relationships through approachable and professional employees that are
responsive to the needs of the public. The Marion Police Department will
serve all with fairness, respect, and dignity.
