Thanks to all who joined us for virtual Coffee with a Cop this morning! Newcastle Police Department Chief Jason Houck answered your questions about police enforcement during the COVID19 outbreak, how you can report violations of the state order and even touched on what color belt he was wearing.

A FEW KEY TAKEAWAYS

1. If you're calling to report group gatherings in violation of the Stay Home, Stay Healthy Order, DO NOT CALL 911. You can call the police non-emergency number at 206-296-3311. Our Police Department's current policy is to take an educational rather than enforcement approach to these type of calls.

2. If you want to report a business operating in violation of the order, please report it directly to the state here.

3. You can view the whole 20 minute talk on our YouTube channel, so take a listen! We promise it has some of Chief Houck's signature humor on display! Click the video below or go to the link here.
