The Berlin Police Department would like to provide an update of the operational changes that have been put in place due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The following measures remain in effect at the police department:
All public fingerprinting services remain suspended. Any questions related to fingerprinting can be directed to Officer Cathy Griffin at 860-828-7185, email@example.com.
Our prescription drug take back program at police headquarters will continue to be closed. The collection box in our lobby has been taken out of service.
We are requesting that citizens who would like to obtain copies of police reports or have any matters pertaining to our Records Division contact us by phone, fax or email (860-828-7109, Fax – 860-828-7590, firstname.lastname@example.org). In response to these requests, a member of our Records Division will make every effort to fulfill them without the need for anyone to come to the police department.
We request that members of the public only use the police department lobby if you are in need of immediate emergency protection or assistance. For all other routine matters, please contact the police department by phone at 860-828-7080 and a dispatcher will assist you.
As always, for any emergency situation, immediately dial 911 for assistance.
Any person entering the lobby of police headquarters or who is inside the building will be required to wear a mask or face covering.
During this first phase of the re-opening there will naturally be an increase in motor vehicle traffic. Our officers will continue to target unsafe driving and moving violations.
Please drive safe, be patient, and avoid distractions when you get behind the wheel.
While the number of thefts from motor vehicles and stolen cars has decreased slightly, we ask you to remain alert and call us to report suspicious persons or vehicles. Lock your car doors and don’t leave valuables inside!
Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we work through this together. The Berlin Police Department will continue to provide our community with the highest level of service during this time.
Chris Ciuci is Deputy Chief of Police/Public Information Officer. He can be reached at 860-828-7086, email@example.com.
