Life has been shaken up since the COVID-19 pandemic, and with so many changes sometimes it can be hard to know if what you're doing is actually helping.

According to a press release from the city of Temple, police officers are still responding to calls that require an officer to be present. Obviously we know that our local law enforcement is very much essential. Officers are responding to calls of violence, crimes in progress, and disturbances.

However, non-emergency crimes are now being handled differently in an effort to maintain social distancing to protect the public and officers. If you need to report a non-emergency crime you can now submit a report online.

Examples of non-emergency crimes include:

  • Burglary of a coin-operated machine
  • Criminal mischief
  • Debit/credit card abuse
  • Graffiti
  • Harassing phone call
  • Lost property
  • Reckless damage
  • Theft

Of course you can always report the above crimes by phone as well.

Let's try to put the least amount of people at risk of COVID-19 by following as many new safe social standards as possible.
