Bank Holiday weekend patrols
Main article content
Officers will be patrolling and speaking to the public about the coronavirus restrictions in place in busy areas over the Bank Holiday Weekend.
Gatherings of more than two people from different households are still prohibited in law but please remember we cannot enforce social distancing.
We understand that where people appear to be congregating in large groups there will be concerns – and we will engage with those groups and check if this is the case.
Sometimes, not everything is as it seems and people aren’t breaching the legislation, and where they are, in many cases, our presence encourages people to disperse.
Enforcement is always a very last resort and thankfully something we haven’t had to use very often.
But the onus is on the public now to remain socially responsible and do the right thing so please help each other by engaging, educating and encouraging those you know who aren’t following the guidance.
