Three Hillsboro Police Department Employees Test Positive for COVID-19
Community policing services are not impacted while employees are quarantined.
Three City of Hillsboro Police Department employees tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend. The three employees quarantined themselves at home, and they will remain at home as they recover from the illness.
The employees were wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) while working with the community and are not thought to have had significant direct contact with community members. Police Department staff remain mindful in wearing PPE while at work.
The level of community policing services provided to the Hillsboro community is not impacted. The department’s nearly 200 employees continue to provide essential services while taking extra precautions and seeking out COVID-19 testing when appropriate.
“We are taking proactive steps to ensure the safety of our employees and the community we serve, including expanding our PPE availability and deep-cleaning both precincts,” said Police Chief Jim Coleman. “We are hoping for a speedy recovery for our three employees, and we hope for the best for all community members affected by COVID-19 in the City of Hillsboro and beyond.”
