Police engagement with funeral undertakers

Assistant Chief Constable Alan Todd said: “We recognise that when a loved one dies it is an extremely difficult and sad time for family members and friends.

“Normally, a funeral allows those grieving to pay their final respects. However, we are currently living in unprecedented times and the health emergency regulations introduced by the Department of Health, with the support of the Executive, are designed to protect the health of the public and ultimately save lives.

“We continue to work in partnership with our colleagues in the NI Executive Office, the Department of Health and agencies across the public sector, to help prevent spread of the virus. To ensure that people adhere to the public health advice, as set out in the Health Protection (Coronavirus Restrictions) Regulations NI 2020, we are engaging with a range of parties to ensure compliance with COVID-19 regulations, including funeral undertakers and, where necessary, local churches and the family of loved ones who have passed away.”
