HCSO Initiates Temporary Service Changes Due to Coronavirus Prevention
Hamilton County, TN - In an attempt to limit exposure of our personnel and the citizens we serve to the possibility of the coronavirus, beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, March 17th, the HCSO will take non-priority reports over the phone until at least April 1st. We will re-evaluate at that time if we need to continue to answer non-priority calls in this manner.
Residents who need to complete a police report may contact 423-622-0022.
Citizens who still wish to speak directly to a deputy in person may do so upon request.
We will have deputies available 8:00 am - 8:00 pm each day to take phone calls from citizens pertaining to non-critical calls.
Rest assured the HCSO will still respond to all critical calls for service involving crimes in progress, instances of violence, and all traffic crashes.
As we move forward in the coming days, we will continue to re-evaluate how we respond to service requests as we as a community work through the current public health situation.
As always, for emergencies, please contact 911.
