THEY'RE WATCHING: Video Policing In Pullman

Posted: Updated:
PULLMAN, Wash. - The City of Pullman is looking into whether or not to install video cameras around WSU to monitor violent crimes and other criminal activities. The Pullman Police Department says the cameras will be placed in public locations where high frequencies of criminal activities happen. One location is the Adams Mall area, in the heart of "Greek Row".

Live video fee will be sent 24/7 to the police station, police cars and the video will be recorded to be used in possible criminal investigations and prosecutions. Where the cameras will be place is to be determined with the help of the Washington State Institute for Criminal Justice at WSU and the WSU Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology. 

The Pullman Police Department is hosting three public hearings on the subject in the next month to hear what the public thinks of the idea.

The project will be paid for in part by a $300,000 Department of Justice "Smart Policing Initiative" grant recently awarded to the Pullman PD. The next public hearing on the subject will be on January 18th at 7 p.m. at Stubblefield's Bar and Grille in Pullman.

There are also meetings planned in February and March.
