The public is being asked to exchange names and information when involved in an accident that does not include injuries or substantial damage. 

Officers will be utilizing personal protective equipment including gloves, face masks and eye protection and possibly wearing protective gowns or smocks. 

When calls requiring an officer to respond come in, the caller will be asked some screening questions and may be asked to come out of the residence to make the report.
