Police station, department amends procedures
The Claremont Police Department has closed the lobby to all non-essential visitors. The station is open for the following situations:
• Regularly scheduled child-custody exchanges (to take place by front door monitored by video surveillance)
• Individuals who are required by law to check in with law enforcement for compliance to terms of release
• For situations in which a law enforcement presence is needed to immediately protect life, safety or property.
• Mandatory visits for payment of fees or collection of property.
“We have not changed or reduced our deployment strategies at this time and will continue to respond to all law enforcement related activities in Claremont,” the department shared. “This is an evolving situation, and the Claremont Police Department is working to maintain field staffing levels that ensure high-quality response times to emergency calls for service within the city.”
To file a crime report, call the Claremont Police Department at (909) 399-5411. Officers will then determine whether a report can be taken over the phone or if an in-person visit is necessary.
If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, fever or a respiratory illness, police ask that you notify them when you make the call to allow first responders to take needed safety precautions prior to arrival.
