Washington Administrative Code (WAC 139-05-300) requires that every peace oficer certified under RCW 43.101.095 complete a minimum of twenty-four hours of in-service training annually. Washington State and the Puyallup Police Department maintain that continuing education and training is the cornerstone for a successful career as a Peace Officer in providing effective SERVICE to citizens. Puyallup Police Department employs a full-time Administrative Secretary/Training Coordinator to ensure that this mandate is met each year for our officers. This is accomplished across all divisions and through partnerships with outside vendors.

The Bureau of Justice Assistance recently announced an opening for local solicitation grant applications. The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) Program is the primary source of federal criminal justice funding to state and local jurisdictions. The JAG Local Solicitation provides vital funding to support a range of programs and equipment for law enforcement.
The Puyallup Police Department will submit the 2015 application to focus on strengthening the response to violence in the community. The grant funding will enable the department to collaborate with local businesses in order to strengthen the communication and response in an active shooter situation. If awarded, Puyallup’s 2015 grant allocation will be $10,229 and will not require local matching funds. We welcome your comments and feedback: please contact
