Lobby of the Police Department is closed Non-Emergency calls will be handled by phone. No fingerprints for public, i.e. Employment, etc. No concealed weapons permit.
Despite the measures being taken, our Officers will still be on-duty. All emergencies will be handled normally and without delay. While we cannot “shut down” we can take precautions to protect our Officers from unnecessary exposures. Officers will be limiting face to face contact. When there is face to face, they will be using Maine CDC guidelines such as 6 feet distance, and no physical contact, ie. No shaking hands. Officers responding to your homes or businesses may ask pre-screening questions. This is not intended to be an invasion of your privacy, but more of an added safety measure for both you and the Officer during this global pandemic.
It is important that we keep our police, fire, and EMS first responders healthy. These measures will assist us. This is an unprecedented time for all of us! Let’s stay healthy, informed, and safe! As the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus continues and we as a community, State and Country try and adapt to our “new normal” to fight this pandemic we want to ensure our community that we will still be here to serve you, however, we will also be taking steps to ensure the health and safety of our responders.
