Employment Opportunities

The Mar-Mac Unified Law Enforcement District is accepting applications for the 2022 eligibility list.

The Mar-Mac Police Department is an entity of the Mar-Mac Unified Law Enforcement District, which encompasses the cities of Marquette and McGregor, in northeast Clayton County, Iowa.  The police department is currently funded for three full-time officers and part-time/reserve officers on an as needed basis.

The cities of Marquette and McGregor are located along the banks of the Mississippi River.  The police department is the primary law enforcement agency to 1,163 (2020 census) year-round residence and hundreds more during the summer months.  Due to our geographical location, the Police District experiences a significant growth in daily transient population and commuters.  This growth is due to the neighboring city of Prairie du Chien, WI (2010 US Census Population – 5,911), local employers, area attractions, nearby festivals, and a state and federal highway.

The police department patrols approximately 3.11 square miles of land, which is the largest geographical region patrolled by a police department in Clayton County.  Also located within, or immediately bordering the Police District is the Mississippi River, Bloody Run Creek, Pikes Peak State Park (approximately 250,000 annual visitors), Effigy Mounds National Monument, and Bloody Run County Park/Wildlife Management Area.

We are seeking applicants who are team oriented and dedicated to serving the communities with dignity, integrity, and professionalism.
