Coronavirus advice and information

Maintaining the safety of everyone in our force area is our top priority and we will continue to work with partners within our local authorities, other emergency services, national police colleagues, the Government and Public Health to achieve this.​

The government has set out new rules to state people should stay at home and all retailers selling non-essential goods and other non-essential premises should be closed, in the fight against Coronvirus / Covid-19. Full information is provided here.  Additional powers have been granted to the police to enforce these rules.  To report anything which goes outside of the government rules, you can do so by using our online reporting form: [Breach Reporting]
