The Marysville Police Department is getting a new top cop. Erik Scairpon, the city’s new Police Chief, will start work here on Monday, Sept. 21. 

Scairpon is currently a Police Captain with the City of Redmond overseeing its Operations division. He has served with the Redmond Police Department since 1998. In his previous role as Police Lieutenant, he served as Commanding Officer of Detectives, Commander of Administration – 911 Director, and a Patrol Operations Commander. He previously served as a Police Sergeant, Police Officer and dispatcher.

“Erik demonstrates the professionalism and initiative we expect in our Police leadership,” Mayor Jon Nehring said. “His 20-plus years in Redmond shows his commitment to community priorities and his understanding that police accountability and integrity is critical to a high-performing Police department that maintains trust with the citizenry.”

Scairpon said, “I am extremely honored and humbled to serve the community of Marysville and the hardworking men and women of the Marysville Police Department as your next Police Chief. I look forward to getting to know my new police family and continue to build trust with the community.”

Scairpon attended the Police Executive Research Forum’s Senior Management Institute for Police. He earned a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota and a bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Washington. 

Interim Chief Jeff Goldman, who has admirably served in that role since last summer, will return to the Assistant Chief role.

“Chief Goldman has provided excellent leadership to the department during a difficult and challenging period, dealing both with the pandemic and turbulent times in law enforcement,” Gloria Hirashima, the city’s Chief Executive Officer, wrote to Police Department employees. “We are also grateful for his willingness to assist through the transition to a new chief.”
