HASTINGS – By following guidelines from federal, state and local experts, the Hastings Police Department’s commitment to our community will not change.  By taking additional precautionary measures, we are attempting to ensure our citizens and officers are staying healthy. This will allow us to continue to best serve the citizens of Hastings.

Citizens may notice some changes in the way officers interact with them in the community.  They may practice social distancing, they may limit handshaking, or follow other recommendations to prevent the spread of any illness.
