About Us

Police Chief Gary JenkinsThe Pullman Police Department provides a variety of basic and enhanced public safety services to residents, businesses, and visitors on a daily basis. The delivery of these services comes in many forms, including emergency response, general patrol, and proactive crime suppression, investigation, traffic and parking enforcement, animal control, code enforcement, dispute mediation, community outreach, educational programs, and emergency preparedness.

The Pullman Police Department embraces the Community Policing model of active community engagement and cooperation. My expectation is that my staff will deliver public safety services in an honest, fair, and professional manner, working with the community to enhance their quality of life.

Our department is staffed by quality men and women, who are committed to this community. Every day, the civilian and commissioned members of the Pullman Police Department earn the distinction of "Pullman's finest". The nature of police work often exposes employees to the worst and most dangerous circumstances. Yet, day in and day out, employees remain committed to doing their best so that others may enjoy a safe community. 

-Gary Jenkins, Chief of Police

D.A.R.E. Program
D.A.R.E.'s primary mission is to provide children with the information and skills needed to live drug-and-violence-free lives. The program strives to equip youth with tools that will enable them to avoid negative influences while focusing on their strengths and potential for success. 

D.A.R.E. establishes positive relationships between students and law enforcement, teachers, parents, and other community leaders. 

Fifth grade students in Pullman public schools complete the D.A.R.E. curriculum. 
Reserve Police Officer Program
The Pullman Police Department offers this opportunity to those interested in serving as a law enforcement officer, while still working in their current line of employment, retired, or pursuing a full-time education.  

The Pullman Police Department Reserve Officer program was established for the purpose of providing volunteer police personnel to supplement the regular police force, benefiting both the City of Pullman and the volunteer. 
Pullman Police Advisory Committee
The Pullman Police Advisory Committee is a volunteer group whose members contribute their time and talents to promote public safety, serve as liaisons between the community and its police department, and assist in educating the community for a better understanding of the respective responsibilities of police officers and citizens.
