Normal Police conduct successful search for protective face masks


NORMAL (HOI) - The community has come through for Normal Police officers seeking protection from COVID-19 when they're responding to calls.

The police department reached out on social media Thursday looking for face masks, specifically the N-95 respirator masks that helps filter out particles and infectious diseases.

Friday evening, Police Chief Rick Bleichner said the department received about 200 face masks, which he said are enough for now.

The McLean County Emergency Management Agency, a public safety agency, and some community organizations sent some of their face masks to Normal Police.
