The Troy Police Department issued an advisory to the community this week, stating that its members and Chief of Police Jeff Taylor will continue to meet regularly with the Lincoln County Health Department regarding COVID-19.

The police department’s statement also touched on the governor’s advisement against large gatherings, and stated that many local stores are adjusting their hours to re-stock and sanitize properly.

“Last, the Troy Police Department would like to offer our assistance to the elderly members or those members of our community, who are at the highest risk for COVID-19,” the department’s statement said.  “If you need someone to pick up medical or personal supplies and are in an ‘at-risk’ category, please contact our non-emergency line: (636) 528-4725.  Our officers, both on-duty and off-duty, have volunteered to retrieve these items from the stores for you. We will make arrangements for pick-up and delivery, should anyone need assistance.

“We live in a great community. Times like this help pull us together and we are able to see how lucky we truly are to have a community that rallies around one another to get through any crisis. We at the Troy Police Department, have no doubt that we will pull through this crisis and be stronger and more united than ever.”
