PCFIT News Releases

 

The Tacoma Police Department is part of the Pierce County Force Investigation Team (PCFIT). There are times our Public Information Officer will issue news releases on behalf of PCFIT – you can find those news releases below. With the passage of Washington State Initiative 940, when the use of deadly force by an officer results in death, substantial bodily harm or great bodily harm, those incidents must be investigated independently, separate from the involved agency. These news releases are part of the PCFIT investigations where our Public Information Officer takes the lead in communicating with the media and public.
