Rockport — As COVID-19 continues to impact the everyday lives of Americans, the Rockport Police Department continues its mission to serve the people of Rockport.

Chief of Police Randy Gagne said in a brief on Wednesday, "We have made some changes to our operational procedures during the current COVID-19 pandemic."

These changes include handling most calls by phone. Gagne said, "We do respond when situations warrant a police response." Officers are also wearing personal protective equipment when responding to a call.

Rockport police are still patrolling the streets. Gagne has said, "We will NOT be stopping motorists just to check their essential reason for traveling." Administration and Patrol offices have also closed to the public.

Gagne said, "I urge everyone to fully read the Executive Order issued by Governor Mills." Gagne also warned that a violation of the governor's order could result in a fine of up to 1,000 dollars and jail time.

As COVID-19 continues to disrupt the ordinary lives of Americans, the Rockport Police Department says it is still committed to serving the community in the safest and best way possible.
