If you’d still like to file a police report or use these services in person, Metro says you may visit your local area command. If you decide to do this, they suggest you prepare for long waits by wearing hats and sunscreen and bringing water, umbrellas and portable chairs.

Those who go to any Metro facility can expect to:

  • Wear a mask. You are asked to bring your own, as they’ll only be provided as long as supplies are available.
  • Be asked to return at a later date if you have a fever or are ill
  • Refrain from bringing family members or friends
  • Bring a cellphone to safely wait outside until you are called
  • Practice social distancing, staying at least six feet apart
