Greenville Police to Begin "Social Distancing"


GREENVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — The expanding Wuhan Covid-19 virus is forcing Greenville Police to make some change in how they interact with the public. In a statement released Wednesday Chief of Police Delando Wilson said his personnel are taking every precaution to prevent becoming infected and also to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus so they are able to continue maintaining law and order in the community in what he called “these especially in these uncertain times.” The new policies announced by Chief Wilson means the lobby at headquarters will now only open from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM, and only two citizens will be allowed inside at one time. Appointments will be needed to obtain background checks, fingerprints, reports, and pay tickets. Dispatchers will decide whether calls to the main number require a police officer be sent or if the problem can be handled over the phone. If a police response to your property or home is required, GPD is asking that you please advise dispatch if you are exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 so that officers can take the necessary precautions. Officers may also require citizens to come outside of their home or business to conduct the call for service to maintain proper “social distancing” if applicable.
