Once again, our community is being asked to adapt. Today, each and every one of us is living in a reality we never thought we’d see. We are being asked to put our lives on hold in a way many of us never before experienced. I know there are many questions about what to expect in the coming days, and while I don’t have all the answers, here is what I can tell you.

*Lewisville Police Officers continue patrolling the streets. They will continue to be out there 24/7. When you call 911, someone will answer, and someone will help you.

* LPD Officers will *not* randomly stop drivers or pedestrians to ask about their destinations. They *will* continue to enforce traffic laws and stop drivers and pedestrians who are violating traffic laws.

* Denton County does not require travel permits. If you live in Denton County, you can still leave your home for Essential needs or to travel to another city or county if you work in an Essential industry, need to care for a family member or for child custody exchanges. People who live in other counties, but work in Denton County, will still be able to travel to their place of employment, provided it is in operation as an Essential service.

It may feel like we are facing a lifetime of challenges crammed into the span of a few weeks. We must all work together to protect each other during the COVID-19 disease outbreak. There are those who believe these measures are unnecessary; that they cross the line. It is okay to believe that. It is also okay to believe the medical professionals who are on the front lines saying this is what needs to be done to save lives. We choose to move in the direction that will allow our community to one day thrive again.

We don’t always know what tomorrow may bring, but please know this: Your dispatchers stand ready to take your calls. Your Lewisville police officers will show up for their briefings, prepare their patrol vehicles, investigate their cases and hit the streets to do their part to protect you. Our detention officers will continue processing inmates. In this time of uncertainty, you can be certain we will keep doing our jobs each and every day.
