[ARCHIVED] Norfolk Police enhance response to the community in wake of COVID-19 in Hampton Roads

Norfolk, Va (NPD) – In an effort to support social distancing and reduce potential exposure to COVID-19, Norfolk Police encourage residents to utilize the Citizens Online Reporting System for incident related to Property Damage, Stolen Property, Harassment, Thefts, and Shoplifting. Officers will also be assigned to the Emergency Operations Center to support dispatcher and address non-emergency calls for service.

As Chief of Police, I had to find a way to still provide optimal service while reducing the chances officers and community members could be exposed to the Coronavirus,” said Chief Larry D. Boone. “Utilizing our resources in line with technology will help us to do just that.”

Police will continue to respond to calls for service, especially those related to a violent crime including reports of missing or endangered individuals.

“I look forward to getting back to some form of normalcy,” said Chief Boone. “And I encourage everyone to do their part in reducing their chances of exposure. Meanwhile, you can count on the women and men of the Norfolk Police Department to do whatever takes to ensure the safety of its residents.”
