KPD Mask and Glove Utilization in Response to COVID-19

Officers and civilian employees interacting with the public will continue to wear masks, goggles, and/or protective gloves.

Other steps KPD is taking to protect our officers and the public include:
  • We have sectioned off an area in front of the lobby service window to allow for the 6-feet of social distance.
  • We continue to screen calls through dispatch and to encourage telephone reporting of non-violent crimes when appropriate.
  • When an officer responds to a residence or business, they may ask to take the report outside of the structure.
  • Our officers are instructed to follow CDC guidelines regarding frequent hand washing, social distancing, and temperature monitoring.
  • We have protocols in place to guide employees if they should develop a fever or other symptoms during their shift.
  • Vehicles are cleaned with disinfecting wipes multiple times each day and with a disinfecting mist weekly.
As a reminder, anytime you wish to speak with an officer or report a non-emergency incident (including animal control issues), please call dispatch at 817-478-5416. This call may be answered as if you had called 9-1-1. Please do not hang up.
