The Coalinga Police Department will be temporarily changing how its officers responds to calls for services due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Until further notice all non-emergency calls will be handled telephonically unless the caller has suspect information or the scene needs to be processed to recover evidence. The police department will respond to all emergency calls and in progress calls for service.
The front lobby will be closed, and citizens will need to contact the dispatcher via the intercom by the front door. Once the dispatcher has obtained the necessary information an officer will be dispatched to the lobby at which time the officer will let the citizen in as long as they are not showing signs of a cold (coughing, sneezing, runny nose, etc.).
