ABILENE, TX – The Abilene Police Department will be assisting citizens who may need help sheltering from the weather and are not able to get out of the elements during this significant weather event. Temperatures are expected to remain below freezing for an extended period of time, and heavy snow and ice accumulation is possible beginning Sunday evening. Starting immediately, officers will be reaching out and directing our most vulnerable population to the Salvation Army where they will be able to stay through the cold spell. This event is part of a larger Citywide cold weather planning to assist our Citizens who may be in need of help.
