Because of how law enforcement works, there are many times when officers are forced to break the 6-feet apart protocol from the CDC. However, fear isn't taking over MPD, and staff is still going to work.
"Everybody's coming in at the districts. They're still reporting. We have some quarantines, but – knocking on wood – small (numbers)," said Morales.
While everyone is still returning to work, the staff is taking action to help keep the districts safe and healthy by wiping down spaces. They've also gotten some face masks to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
