As of January 1st, 2018, SNOCOM and SNOPAC have merged into one agency, Snohomish County 911. The home for Snohomish County 911 is  WWW.SNO911.ORG. The SNOCOM and SNOPAC websites will remain online for a period of time in order to help get the word out that we have consolidated. The old sites will no longer be updated, so please use the new site for the lastest information about Snohomish County 911.


SNOCOM strives to hire the finest candidates available. Finding candidates that meet these qualifications is not a quick or simple process. SNOCOM therefore requires a multi-step testing and screening process which can take several months from the time the position is posted to the actual hire date.

Steps in the process may include the following: 

  • Completion of an initial application and questionnaire; followed by a screening process through to verify that they meet our minimum requirements for the position. (A minimum PST score of 70% is required.)
  • Typing Test with a required speed of 35 WPM with 90% accuracy to move forward in the process.
  • Profile XT assessment (via internet) that measures an applicant's job-related qualities that make that person productive. Thinking and Reasoning Style, Behavior Traits and Occupational Interests are examined.
  • A panel interview comprised of members from the SNOCOM dispatch team and representatives from our police and fire agencies.
  • A final interview with the SNOCOM Director and/or Operations Manager will be scheduled for applicants that are recommended by the panel to move forward.
  • Applicants selected by the Operations Manager and Director will undergo a pre-employment polygraph and psychological examination. Additionally, fingerprinting and a thorough background investigation will be conducted.

To begin this process, interested dispatch applicants should apply at
