MATTHEWS – The Matthews Police Department is resuming a couple of community programs that had been suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Police will resume its car seat checking station between 8 and 11:30 a.m. every other Wednesday, starting June 9.
The medicine drop box is available in the front lobby with 24/7/365 public access. Bring any prescribed or over-the-counter medication for proper destruction. Don't bring syringes, even unused/sealed EpiPen.
Police department tours and ride-alongs are still suspended until further notice.
Police ask that people adhere to CDC recommendations on COVID-19, which currently call for unvaccinated people to wearing a mask. If you are experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19, do not attend any police department events until evaluated by a doctor.
