Effective immediately, all non-emergency incidents, depending on the nature, that require law enforcement involvement will be handled over the telephone in order to limit contact. On calls requiring law enforcement response, officers may ask you to step outside, in order to create the recommended six feet of social distancing. Understand that if you call E-911 for any reason, dispatchers have instituted new call screening protocols to help identify potential COVID-19 cases. For additional up to date information the New York State Department of Health has issued an informational document that offers guidelines to best address the recent Corona Virus outbreak. Included in this document are a list of resource guides to better prepare for this continued health emergency.
