Glendale Police Department Operational Adjustments in Response to COVID-19

Post Date:03/17/2020 9:25 AM

Glendale, California – As part of a continued, proactive approach towards slowing the spread of the Novel Coronavirus, the Glendale Police Department is making certain operational adjustments. Please know that our response to emergency and non-emergency calls for service has not changed, and we will continue to deliver uninterrupted police services in our community.

In an effort to provide the highest level of safety and service, while preserving the health of both police personnel and members of the community, we will be limiting access to the front lobby of the Glendale Police Department (131 N. Isabel St.) until further notice, except in essential situations. Lobby restrictions will not apply to the following:

  • Situations in which a law enforcement presence is needed to immediately protect life, safety, or property
  • Impound releases
  • Individuals who are required by law to check-in with law enforcement
  • Mandated visits for payment of fees or collection of property

If a member of the public requires police assistance while at the Glendale Police Department, they can utilize the phone located next to the main entrance doors to speak with an operator.

If calling for police services while experiencing flu-like symptoms, fever, or respiratory distress, please notify our communications operators so first responders can take necessary safety precautions prior to their arrival. The Glendale Police Department is also limiting jail visits of inmates to attorneys and clergy only, in accordance with recommendations by the Board of State & Community Corrections.
