Legal Question in Landlord & Tenant Law in Washington

My father owns his house and his girlfriend has lived there for 6 years. He has asked her several times to move out, telling her the relationship is over, but she won't leave. Does he need to go through an eviction process or can he just call the cops to kick her out? He pays all the bills, everything is in his name, and they have no joint possessions. She's never paid rent. We live in Washington State.

It requires an eviction. The police will not get involved. One needs to be careful that he does nothing resembling domestic violence OR she could get a domestic violence protection order to restrain HIM from HER "residence" (i.e. HIS house).
