On behalf of Yale Public Safety, I want to assure you that Yale’s Police Officers and Security teams remain fully committed to their responsibility of providing quality service and protection to the Yale community during this unprecedented and challenging time. To help keep our police officers and the community healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic, the department has temporarily modified a few of their patrol procedures when responding to certain incidents and calls for service in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and align with industry best practices.
