EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — The El Paso Police Department is working toward minimizing risk to their officers and employees by implementing a series of safeguards to protect them during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The new procedures went into effect Friday, including dispatchers asking health and travel-related questions to El Pasoans requesting police assistance. Police will also begin using social distancing in their calls, leaving at least 6-feet between officers.
El Pasoans are encouraged to use online and telephone reporting options to file police reports when officers are not immediately needed on the scene.
For non-emergency calls contact (915) 832-4400 or online reporting (915) 832-4436. Individuals needing to file police reports can do so online at EPPD’s online reporting portal.
