As you are probably aware, the Government has given Police more powers to enforce the Social Distancing and Stay at home measures that have been put in place.
Below, is more information about these and how they will use them from our Local Beat Team.
In these unprecedented times, it’s important that we’re in this together and each and every one of us has a role to play by following government advice. The vast majority are following the advice, and we thank you for listening.
However, for those who are not heeding the stay at home guidance, our officers will seek to engage, explain the circumstances and encourage you to do the right thing in complying with the government request. If considered necessary, we may take enforcement action by way of a Fixed Penalty Notice if you are putting others at risk.
Our top priorities are to ensure that we keep our local communities safe, maintaining the best service to the public, while also protecting officers and staff during these challenging times. We, together, can help support the nationwide response by following Government advice.
