Items for Committee Review

The Pullman Police Advisory Committee welcomes and actively invites input and feedback from the citizens of the City of Pullman. If there is a community issue that you believe that the Police Advisory Committee should review, please contact the Committee by any one of the methods listed below.
Submissions to the Committee are compiled and submitted to Committee members on a monthly basis for review and discussion at the next scheduled Committee meeting. Typically, citizen submissions will not receive a direct response from the Committee, except as warranted by extreme or exigent circumstances.

Police Department Feedback

The City of Pullman has a feedback form that can be used to provide positive or negative feedback for the Police Department. If a negative complaint is received, a Police Sergeant is assigned to investigate the matter and report their findings to the Chief of Police. These forms are available at both, the Police Department and City Hall. The forms can be mailed to you upon request.
