QUINCY (WGEM) — The Quincy Police Department has modified how they will respond to calls, according to a news release posted to their Facebook Page Friday afternoon.
Deputy Chief Adam Yates states that due to COVID-19 concerns, those wishing to report a crime that is not in-progress are asked to do so via telephone or on the City of Quincy's website.
Deputy Chief Yates states that non-emergency calls made to the dispatch center will be responded to with a follow-up phone call from an officer rather than a personal visit. After that call is made police will determine how to proceed with the investigation.
Yates stated crimes that are in progress or any other call that requires police response will be handled the way they always have.
"The safety of our citizens is still the highest priority for the men and women of the Quincy Police Department," said Deputy Chief Yates.
