The safety of our citizens and visitors has always been one of the key functions in our duties as law enforcement officers. As we are partners in our community, our role is vital to serving those in need.
We also recognize that the safety and well being of the officers can not be compromised. In an effort to continue providing for the needs of others, especially in this trying and difficult time, we are continually seeking better ways to communicate and address those instances in which we are called to assist.
Because of this, I am authorizing our Officers and Supervisors, when responding to non emergency calls, to limit even further, their physical interactions. Officers may, at their discretion, determine the necessity of contacting the citizen either by phone or in person.
If the event is “in progress” or physical in nature, the officers will continue to respond as always, and will utilize the most viable and recommended safety protocols.
If however, there is a need to file a report or take call information that is “non active” or not an emergency, they may contact the complaint by phone.
Until we have a better understanding of the current risk, these procedures will remain in place. The decision to make further adjustments may come later, and in the event further restrictions apply, we will make our best decision on current recommendations and practices which allow us to continue the professional level of service with which each of you are entitled to.
Please feel free to contact my office if you have any concerns or recommendations.
As always, I am at your service.
-Chief Tracy Keele, Clear Lake Shores Police Department
