·        All applicants will need to practice social distancing, staying six (6) feet apart from each other.

·        We will continue our long time practice, allowing only applicants in our lobby.

We continue to encourage you to renew all unarmed applicants by email- polu@kcpd.org, mail and fax in an effort to minimize the number of persons in our lobby and waiting to enter the lobby.
