To ensure the health and safety of our community, the Anchorage Police Department (APD) is taking simple additional precautionary steps to prevent the potential exposure to and spread of COVID-19:
- Dispatchers and officers will be asking the public COVID-19 related questions to prevent unintentional exposure to the virus.
- Officers may wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) when physically interacting with the public. Expect to see different types of PPE worn depending on the situation. If you see an officer wearing PPE, it DOES NOT necessarily mean COVID-19 is present.
- All community engagement activities/events, such as the ride-a-long program, Coffee with a Cop, public appearance requests and more, have been suspended until further notice.
- The APD front lobby at its headquarters is closed. Click the Nixle link for more information: https://local.nixle.com/alert/7880408/
