Bangor PD – Stay Home, Stay Safe

Category : Community , Enforcement

Executive Order 2020-21 authorizes critical infrastructure workers and persons engaged in an outdoor activity, or performing tasks necessary to the health and safety of themselves or their family, to leave their homes for these limited purposes. 

 For this reason, the Bangor Police Department has no plans to randomly stop people or perform any coordinated campaign to inspect businesses to ensure compliance with this order.  With that said, Executive Orders do carry the weight of law and the Bangor Police Department stands ready to enforce any aspect of these orders, if needed.  

However, with the seriousness of this situation, we are confident that citizens will take notice and voluntarily comply, as it is in the best interest of the entire state that we all work together to stay home as much as possible to slow the spread of COVID-19.

There is current 10pm-6am Curfew in Bangor is only advisory at this time.
