As the COVID-19 outbreak evolves, our focus is on maintaining our ability to provide essential police services to our community. AbbyPD’s policing units remain fully operational and continue to respond to calls for service.
In an effort to maintain operational readiness, and to reduce the spread of COVID-19, effective immediately, our Public Service Counter at AbbyPD Headquarters (2838 Justice way) and the Community Policing Office (34194 Marshall Road) are closed.
