The WRPD has a professional cleaning company at the department today disinfecting our entire PD fleet of vehicles as one of the ways we are working to keep our officers safe from contracting COVID-19. The cleaning crew is in the parking lot today and dressed in hazmat suits and PPE to remain safe themselves. Additionally, a decontamination station has been set up outside the department as yet one more precaution for officers as they return from calls for service in order to minimize the risk to themselves and others. This week the cleaning service will also be doing a deep disinfection of the holding cells, processing areas, and briefing rooms as well as disinfecting any equipment that might get contaminated such as body cameras and utility belts.
There is currently no infection at WRPD and this work is being done out of an abundance of caution to protect our officers.
