Press Release, Police Chief Chad Kenward

MEDINA – The Medina Police Department in response to the COVID-19 Coronavirus has made adjustments to its operational plans. These operational plans are accordance with guidelines set by the CDC and other federal, state, and local authorities.

The Medina Police Department administrative office is closed to the public until further notice.  Only police officers and other essential personnel will be allowed inside the building.

Police Officers can be contacted by calling Orleans County Dispatch (585) 589-5627 or, in the case of an emergency, 911.

During business hours (Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), you can also call (585) 798-5602 for an officer or administrative assistance.

Calls for service that are not priority, officers may utilize phone contact rather than appearing in person.

Calls for service that require officers to appear in person may result in the officer asking persons to come outside to speak rather than inside or in close proximity.

We understand any frustration this may lend you, but please understand these measures are taken to reduce officers’ exposure to the virus and to still provide a high level of service to the public.

These operational plans will remain in effect until further notice.
