PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — With plummeting temperatures forecasted for the upcoming week,
the city wants to remind residents that the Peoria Police and Peoria Fire Departments have options
for warming centers.

The Peoria Police Department lobby is located at 600 SW Adams Street and is normally closed to the public from 5 p.m. until 9 a.m. However, it will remain a warming center, regardless of the time of day.

Any visitors to City buildings will have their temperatures checked and be required to wear a mask,
per the City’s COVID-19 policy to protect staff and visitors.
