GRIDLEY-BIGGS, Calif. - As stations across the nation work to limit exposure for staff, the Gridley-Biggs Police Department is putting restrictions on the calls they will be taking.

In a Facebook post, the department said personal contact should be avoided on any call where a suspect is not present and in those cases, the call will be handled by dispatch.

The department said dispatch will inform callers officers will not be responding for personal contact to the following calls:

  • Abandoned Vehicles
  • Fraudulent Use of Credit Card
  • Harassment Using an Electronic Device
  • Identity Theft
  • Lost Property
  • Non-Injury Assault/Battery
  • Theft
  • Theft from Vehicle
  • Theft of Credit Card
  • Theft of Mail
  • Vandalism
  • Violation of Court Order

While the lobby will remain open, general fingerprinting services will be suspended, as well as the updating of photographs for registrants.

Ride-a-longs, trainings and meetings that require close contact and volunteer services will also all be suspended.

Visitors to the station will be limited to those only "absolutely necessary" and while animal control services will continue, the shelter will be closed to the public.

If you have any questions, please contact Gridley-Biggs Police Department at 530-846-5670.
