The State College Police would like to inform the public of measures we are taking to help protect both our staff and the public from potential COVID-19 exposure during police contacts. Our officers are being instructed to use personal protective equipment (PPE) when performing job functions with the public in accordance with Governor Tom Wolf’s recommendations made on April 3. This additional equipment being worn will include masks and gloves.
We are also asking for the public’s understanding that our officers will attempt to resolve calls which do not require immediate police contact via a phone call or through email. Officers will continue to respond to any in-progress or other call necessitating immediate police contact. Officers will attempt to maintain appropriate social distancing when practical. We will continue to serve our community 24-hours a day and are always a phone call away.
