Bend Police Focus On Educating People During COVID-19 Restrictions

BEND, OR -- With Deschutes County under the Extreme Category, mask wearing and other precautions to prevent virus spread, are in place. Bend Police Chief Mike Krantz says complaints about businesses that aren’t following the rules are likely to be investigated by City Code Enforcement, OSHA or the OLCC. Krantz says police can take enforcement action against individuals which amounts to a misdemeanor.  But he says his officers have been taking the education route since the beginning of the pandemic, talking to folks and handing out thousands of masks as opposed to citations.
