Doors to the Police Department will remain locked as they are on evenings and weekends.

If so, you will be directed to call the PD and will then be connected with an officer. If the purpose of your visit is determined to require face-to-face contact with an officer, dispatch will ask screening questions. If it is determined that a meeting will move forward, officers meet you in the front entryway and either take the report there or bring you into the conference room.
