Senior Investigator

US Government, Office of Independent Investigations

Who We Are
In response to citizen deaths resulting from encounters with law enforcement and the community’s demand for change, the Washington State Legislature created a new, first-of-its-kind agency: The Office of Independent Investigations (OII). This new agency was formed in 2021 and the law requires that investigations involving law enforcement agents’ use of deadly force must be truly independent and investigated by an agency unconnected to law enforcement or a prosecutor’s office.
Our mission is to conduct fair, thorough, transparent, and competent investigations of incidents involving use of deadly force. This innovative approach to investigations will remove conflicts of interest, improve accountability and transparency, and renew the public’s confidence. Through these efforts, we hope to strengthen the relationships between police and the community, build public trust, and promote effective policing. To help us carry out this mission, we are looking for Investigators of all levels to join our growing team.
As a Senior Investigator on our team, you will play an integral role in the investigations of complex, high-profile cases involving police use of deadly force. Your primary focus will center around evidence collection, conducting interviews, and coordinating with other investigative agencies, as well as communicating with family and community liaisons to ensure the public is well-informed and the process is transparent.

Note: Due to the nature of these positions, you must pass a pre-employment background check to be eligible for hire. Background checks include a mental health evaluation, fingerprinting, and a polygraph.
