|~ Pulaski's dying words before getting killed by Carl Johnson.|
Officer Edward "Eddie" Pulaski (October 8, 1953 - 1992) is a major antagonist in the videogame Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
Pulaski was once a non-corrupt cop before joining the C.R.A.S.H. unit under Frank Tenpenny's leadership; Tenpenny slowly manipulated Pulaski and turned him into a corrupt cop just like Tenpenny himself.
In 1992, during Hernandez's initiation in The Introduction, Pulaski joins Tenpenny in forcing the idealistic recruit to shoot Officer Ralph Pendelbury, their former partner (and would-be informant). Pulaski assisted Tenpenny in helping the Ballas run drugs into Los Santos. He is also present when the hit on CJ and Sweet Johnson's mother is called. Hernandez, who suffers constant harassment by his C.R.A.S.H. "partners", reports Tenpenny and Pulaski to Internal Affairs.
The three cops drive out to the desert ghost town of Las Brujas during the mission "High Noon" to collect the evidence the FBI compiled on them from CJ. Tenpenny hits Hernandez in the back of the head with a shovel the second he leaves the car, saying he sold them out. Tenpenny drives off, leaving Pulaski to hold CJ at gunpoint and force him to dig Hernandez's (and subsequently his own) grave.
CJ tries to reason with Pulaski and convince him that Tenpenny will kill him too in order to silence the last person who knows about his corruption, but Pulaski does not believe him and refuses to listen. Hernandez suddenly springs to life and tackles Pulaski in order to help Carl, but Pulaski fatally shoots him. Now only CJ and him, Pulaski runs to his car and drives away. When CJ chases after him, Pulaski tries to convince him that he only didn't kill him due Tenpenny's intervention and spews vile statements about CJ's mother and sister, the latter whom Pulaski admits having liked her and having photographed along her boyfriend Cesar Vialpando as "two horny chihuahas".
Enraged, CJ runs Pulaski's car off the road and mortally wounds him. In his final moments, CJ asks "any last requests?". Pulaski asks CJ "Can I f**k your sister?", to which CJ retorts "You're an a$$hole to the end" and kills him by a stomp to the head. Though this is the canon outcome of Pulaski's death, Carl can also knock his car off the highway into the sea, where Pulaski ends up drowning upon exiting from his car, thus omitting his death cutscene.
Later when Tenpenny is mentioned getting into court where he along with Pulaski himself were charged with several offenses it is mentioned on the news that Pulaski along with Jimmy Hernandez were believed to be on the run when in fact Pulaski and Hernandez are both dead eventually the charges against Tenpenny are dropped triggering a riot in Los Santos. Shortly after Big Smoke's death and before Tenpenny's own, Tenppeny remarks that he knows that Carl killed Pulaski and shows no pity for his most loyal subordinate's death, demonstrating that Carl's warnings to Pulaski were right: Pulaski meant anything for Tenpenny.
Pulaski is a violent and trigger-happy thug. While Tenpenny is depicted as a megalomaniac who lacks a conscience, Pulaski is merely a degenerate, ignorant thrill seeker. There is little to suggest that Pulaski ever thinks for himself or has insight into the events surrounding him. He is a racist and joins his partner in calling Officer Hernandez racial slurs.
Pulaski, fully indoctrinated into Tenpenny's approach to police work, has a high level of deluded trust in the man and considers him a close friend. He is the only character Pulaski actually seems to respect. However, Tenpenny measures people only by how useful they are to him, and Pulaski is useful so long as he helped Tenpenny cover his back. In "The Introduction" Pulaski calls Tenpenny "pal", to which Tenpenny says, "Pal?! I'm your superior officer and don't you forget that sh*t!" Pulaski also shares Tenpenny's belief that CJ and people like him are at best useful idiots and at worst less than human.
|“||(CJ: Hey, Eddie! You know that Tenpenny gonna rub you out too.) Carl, you got it all wrong pal. Tenpenny was the one saving your a$$! Every time I wanted to get rid of you, he'd find some excuse to keep you alive, but now it's up to me now and I ain't such a f**kin' soft touch. So, how's your sister? I've always had a thing for her. Tenpenny and I got some great shots of her and her Varrio boyfriend going at it like a couple of horny Chihuahuas. Man, does she put out like a pro! (CJ: Screw you, Pulaski! I know what you're trying to do, and you ain't gonna crawl inside my head.) I ain't kidding! It's the best stake-out I ever done! Carl, you should have seen your mom before she was buried. She was a real mess - most of her face was hanging off! (CJ: Don't f**king talk about my moms!) The boys, you know, they fooled around with her at the scene, you know... touching her, joking around and sh*t. (CJ: F**k you, Pulaski. F**K YOU!)||„|
|~ Pulaski to CJ.|
|“||(CJ: Eddie, Tenpenny's just using you. He's using all of us! You're the next one he's gonna silence, man.) Shut the f**k up, scum! And it's Officer Pulaski to you! (Hernandez regains consciousness, only to be shot dead) *gunshot* F**kin' die!!||„|

- He is the only major villain of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas who is not African-American.
- He is of Polish descent.
- In "High Noon", it's inexplicable how Pulaski's Buffalo (which has written in the license plate PULASKI) appeared from nowhere at Las Brujas as Pulaski arrived on the police cruiser along Tenpenny and Hernandez. This may be an oversight of the game's developers.
- He is 5'8 and 205 lbs.
- He shares the same surname with Michael Pulaski, a character from Family Guy, who is also of Polish descent.
