Ahead of the Bank Holiday weekend, Assistant Chief Constable Alan Todd is calling on the public to act responsibly, only travel when necessary and continue to abide by the Northern Ireland Executive regulations to help stop the spread of Covid19.

ACC Todd said: “The guidance from our Health Minister and the NI Executive, alongside the regulations, are clear; people should only leave home when they have a clear and essential reason for doing so.

“Since the beginning of the restrictions we have been aware of a slow but steady increase in the number of vehicles on our roads. While some of this can be explained by increased commercial activity and the travel of essential workers there is clearly a number of people who are not adhering to the regulations.

“We will be conducting patrols and checks over the weekend right across Northern Ireland and we will also be coordinating activity with our colleagues in An Garda Siochana.

“Our preference is always for members of our communities to comply with the restrictions in place and throughout our activity over the weekend we will continue to engage, explain and encourage people to play their part to protect themselves and others. Enforcement will always be a last resort.”
