(Markesan) Markesan Police Chief Will Pflum says as much as they can, he and his officers are also trying to practice social distancing. He says they may be wearing protective personal equipment for some calls they respond to. In other cases they may only need information they can get over the phone. Pflum says they aren’t just trying to protect their officers, but those they deal with when responding to a call. He says in this age of the pandemic they have had to arm themselves with a different type of protective gear.
