A message from Chief Dan Donath:
"We are taking proactive steps to keep our officers and civilian employees healthy so they can continue to keep your community safe. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Bloomington Police Department has modified our operations to include the following changes (as of 3-17-20). "
• Our large public meeting room, known as the Osborn Room, is now closed until May 1, 2020. If you had an event scheduled in this room, it has now been cancelled.
• Public fingerprinting services by the department have been suspended until further notice.
• Public access to the Administration Office is suspended until further notice. Those wishing to contact a member of the Police Administration should do so by phone, email or by
visiting our front lobby.
• Under some circumstance's officers may now take minor police reports over the phone. This process will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
• All hearings involving an ordinance violation or vehicle towing will be postponed until May 20, 2020. If you have a court date or tow hearing scheduled during this time, you will receive a notice to appear for a new date. Questions regarding these two matters should be directed to City Legal, 309-434-2213.
In these trying times, please focus on getting your information from reliable sources. The McLean County Health Department has created a new website focused on regional information about COVID-19.
