Huntsville police say the virus is changing the way officers work. The department says friends in public safety at Huntsville Fire and Rescue provided protective masks, gloves and hand sanitizer.
The police department says it has a liberal go home policy. Extra officers are now patrolling, because school resource officers aren’t needed in schools right now, so they can help out.
