COVID 19 update statement from Assistant Chief Constable Alan Todd on the number of CRNs & PNDs Issued Between 30 Mar 2020 and 24 Apr 2020.

Assistant Chief Constable Alan Todd said, “We said in our statement earlier this week that greater clarity in the regulations would have undoubtedly made our job easier to police this current health crisis. Therefore we welcome today’s announcement and the clarity that the change to the regulations and any associated guidance will bring to the public and police officers alike.

“We will continue to engage with people and explain what we need them to do and encourage them to follow the restrictions that are in place. Enforcement is always a last resort. The vast majority of people spoken to by Police Officers have cooperated well and a relatively small number of penalty notices have been issued to date.

“We have over the last two days implemented additional quality assurance measures in respect of police enforcement of these restrictions and these measures will continue until any new guidance is issued, implemented and bedded in.”
