Pittsburg Police Response to Spread of COVID-19

Police Department Press Release

March 17, 2020

As a proactive measure against the spread of the COVID-19, the coronavirus, the Pittsburg Police Department will be limiting public services and cancelling or postponing community events. Department officials are keeping up to date with current information about our area and will be making adjustments as needed.

Community Events- All community events will be postponed until further notice. This includes Citizen’s Academy and other previously scheduled community outreach.

Municipal Court- In an effort to limit community spread and close quarter exposure, Municipal Court will be closed effective immediately and until April 15.  All hearings, trials, and first appearances will be rescheduled. Those expecting court dates between March 18 and April 15 will receive mail notification with a new court date.

Pay Fines– Citizens needing to pay fines can do so by calling 620-231-9880 or using the drop box located in the front door vestibule of the law enforcement center. A receipt will be mailed to you.

Fingerprinting– All fingerprinting services will cease until further notice.

Reports- We are encouraging those who need to file a report should do so by calling 620-231-1700 and refrain from entering the law enforcement center lobby. Whenever possible, officers will be responding to non-emergency reports via phone calls. This does not apply to emergency calls, where crime is in-progress, violent in nature, or when suspects may still be on scene.

Records- If you need to request a copy of your incident report for insurance or other purposes, please call our Records Division 620-235-0400.
