WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - The Wichita Police Department received a donation of 10,000 KN95 masks to distribute to the public as a statewide mask mandate is in effect and a local order is in place for the City of Wichita.

The police department said the masks will be available for citizens at each patrol substation, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you are in need of a mask, you are asked to call before coming to pick one up.

“Please, for our community, give that priority to those that are high-risk and those that might not be able to afford a mask,” said WPD spokesperson, Officer Paul Cruz.

Patrol North, 3015 E 21st St N - (316) 350-3400

Patrol South, 211 E Pawnee - (316) 350-3440

Patrol East, 350 S Edgemoor - (316) 350-3420

Patrol West, 661 N Elder - (316) 350-3460

They were provided to the police department thanks to a partnership with Air Capital Distribution.

The City of Wichita encourages residents with questions or concerns about the facemask ordinance to call the city’s new mask hotline at 316-303-8255, email masks@wichita.gov or visit Wichita.gov/coronavirus. The city asks that residents don’t call 911 about facemasks.

N95 Masks Donation

WPD has received a generous donation of 10,000 KN95 masks from Air Capital Distribution. This developed from Officer Watson’s partnership with the City of Wichita Housings summer youth program called, “The way to work program,” where youth are employed at different companies like Air Capital Distribution. The purpose of this program is to teach our youth job skills and keep them off the streets. If you would like more information, please visit positiveinteractions.org. Citizens can now pick-up a mask from one of our four Patrol Sub Stations for free, Monday- Friday between 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Please call ahead before you go to pick up a mask. Masks are available for everyone who wants one, but please be considerate of those who may not be able to afford a mask and those who are at high risk due to health issues. **Sub Stations will be closed on 7-4-20** Patrol North - 3015 E. 21st St. N., 316-350-3400 Patrol South - 211 E.
