Governor Inslee’s proclamations were issued to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. There is no question that the proclamations have caused a significant disruption in all of our lives, but the trade-off is the health and safety of our community. The Pullman community has stepped up with voluntary compliance and we are all working together to support our local businesses.


The Pullman Police Department embraces the community-oriented policing model of active community engagement and cooperation. We strive to work in partnership with our community, recognizing the value of engagement and collaboration toward improving public safety. We stand between those who are law-abiding and those whose actions risk the health and safety of others.


Violations of the Governor’s proclamations not only put the violator’s health at risk, but the health of our entire community. We implore everyone to abide by Governor Inslee’s declarations. It is the right thing to do for you; it is the right thing to do for your community. If you wish to report a gathering, or other activity that violates Governor Inslee's proclamations, please email details to We are in this together, and Pullman Officers are here to help in keeping our community members safe and healthy.
