MT. JULIET, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Mt. Juliet Police Department is closed to the public due to the statewide surge in COVID-19 cases.

Headquarters will be closed until at least January 11, according to MJPD. They cited Tennessee's recent coronavirus infection rate as the reason.

“Tennessee is experiencing a dramatic rise in COVID-19 cases, and just today, five members of our department have tested positive or are experiencing symptoms and are awaiting test results. I continue to strongly encourage everyone to take precautions to limit the spread of the virus," Chief James Hambrick said in a press release.

People needing to report a crime can do so online or contact police at 615-754-2550. In the event of an emergency, always call 911.

Victims of a crime can still access headquarters if they do not have access to a phone.

The department's records and clerk office will also be closed. People can request report copies online or call the number listed above.

All citation payment dates are currently on hold. Those wishing to pay in-person can do so at a later date. Online payments are still available.

Traffic court is not scheduled at this time. Traffic school is all online.
