Some MPD services will be modified during the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • MPD District Stations are closed to the public. The entryway to each district has a phone with a direct connection to the 911 Center that can be used to request an officer in case of emergency.
  • MPD will continue to take steps to minimize the likelihood of officers being exposed to COVID-19. This could mean officers not responding to some minor incidents, or handling some complaints over the phone.
