Reopening of Police Department Lobby on June 15

Date of release:  June 12, 2020

The Paducah Police Department will reopen its lobby located at 1400 Broadway to the public Monday, June 15, with some restrictions in place.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in accordance with executive orders from Gov. Andy Beshear, the department is taking steps to minimize the risk of infection to our visitors and staff.  Those include 

  • Only four (4) individuals will be allowed in the main lobby at one time.  One (1) person may wait in the outer foyer until an individual in the lobby leaves.
  • Visitors should maintain at least six (6) feet distance from other visitors while in the lobby, as indicated by the markings on the floor.
  • Face-to-face services (fingerprinting, property release, identification cards, etc.) will be by appointment only.  Visitors requesting these services will be required to bring and wear a mask.
  • Other visitors are not required to wear a mask, but it is highly encouraged. 

The lobby will be open from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. weekdays.  The police department’s Records Unit staff is cleaning and disinfecting the lobby area and other areas of the department several times daily.  We ask that if you have a fever or are experiencing other COVID-19-related symptoms, you avoid visiting the police department.
