WFPD COVID-19 Update

As you know, the coronavirus (COVID-19) is affecting all of us in some way, either directly or indirectly. That being said, the Wichita Falls Police Department wants you to know that we are still here for you!

Within the last several days there was a report of someone trying to steal a customer’s grocery items in a food outlet parking lot, and a report of a person selling toilet paper at a very high price out of his vehicle in another parking lot.

In our continual effort to keep our citizens safe, WFPD will step up patrol of retail food outlet parking lots during this time of COVID-19 emergency, similar to the holiday season patrols by our Motor Unit of the shopping areas.

Additionally, we are paying heightened attention to local businesses that were mandated to close during this time, particularly those located downtown. Our normal Patrol duties regarding calls for service will continue with no change.

Please report any suspicious activity in the noted areas to WFPD and allow us to keep you safe. If you have an emergency, please call 9-1-1. If you have a non-emergency, please call 940-720-5000.

We are all going through this together and will get through this TOGETHER!
