Yesterday, Mansfield Township realized our first confirmed case of COVID-19. We encourage everyone to heed the guidance being provided by the CDC and follow the spirit of the stay at home mandate issued by the governor. The Mansfield Township community has been supportive, understanding, and cooperative with our officers throughout this week. We appreciate your continued assistance in that respect.
You’ll find our officers maintaining their distance if you have contact with them, possibly asking to meet with you outside instead of in a building or closed area. We have restricted access to the police station and non-sworn personnel are reporting on a limited basis when necessary. Some incidents will be handled via phone, but officers will respond to emergencies at any time. All of these measures are intended to promote the health and longevity of our officers in order to maintain police services for the community.
