Resident information bulletins

The Police Advisory Commission (PAC)  publishes information related to policing and public safety for residents. These bulletins provide information and resources so that the public can be better informed. Residents who want to learn more or share their opinions can do so at PAC meetings.

Future topics include:

  • Service of warrants
  • Off-duty police actions
  • Other topics of concern voiced by the public, the police department or the Commission.

The Commission and the Police Department encourage comments and discussion regarding police interactions, the contents of the bulletins, and future bulletin topics. If there are topics you wish to have explained please feel free to reach out to the PAC by email (PAC@phila.gov)  or Phone (215)685-0891.
