FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Aurora/Marionville Police implement precautionary measures in response to pandemic.

Aurora/Marionville, MO – In the best interest of the health and safety of our community, the Aurora/Marionville Police Department is implementing precautionary measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Effective immediately, Aurora/Marionville Police will be scaling back on responding to routine medical calls. The police will also take some calls for service over the phone including but not limited to:

  • Animal Complaints
  • Delayed Reporting of Auto Accidents
  • Civil Matters
  • Forgery/Counterfeit
  • Fraud
  • Harassment
  • Juvenile Problems
  • Miscellaneous Ordinance Violations
  • Violations not in progress such as Peace Disturbance, Property Damage and Theft.

Aurora/Marionville Police Officers will still be on patrol and will still respond to calls for service. However, we will attempt to respect the social distance recommendations made by health officials. If Aurora/Marionville Police respond to your home, our officers will ask that you meet them on your porch and maintain 6-10 foot minimum distance. This effort is intended to limit officer exposure to potentially infected persons as much as possible while still providing police services and maintaining a healthy police department.

Instead of coming to the station to report any issues, we encourage people to call Dispatch first at 417-678-5025 and to request phone contact from an officer.

In case of emergency, as always, please call 911.

Thank you for understanding and for doing your part to help us prevent COVID-19 in our community by practicing social distancing and limiting in-person contact as much as possible.

Chief R. Witthuhn
Aurora/Marionville Police Department
