More fines are on the way for people who choose to be stubborn and choose not to follow the rules, because simply they are putting the national at great risk by not following the rules.
In 10 months the police service has already issued 45,000 fines and are not afraid to issue more to those who choose not to follow the coronavirus rules,
Forces will now take a tougher line to ensure that lockdown breaches are enforced and will move to focusing on compliance and enforcement rather than changing the covid rules.
Some police forces have not been following up on covid reports, they have allowed parties to go unchecked without sending out officers to break them up while others forces have done really well and taken positive action.
Now they will have to take action and enforce the rules because those not following the rules are the reason that the virus is spreading rapidly across England.
Home Secretary Priti Patel “Our police officers are moving more quickly to issue fines where people are clearly breaching coronavirus regulations” Police Officers who are enforcing the rules will have the full backing of Ms Patel.
“If you do not play your part, our selfless police officers… they will enforce the regulations, and I will back them to do so.”
We are 10 months in the rules are very simple and clear with members of the public only allowed to leave the home for a very limited number of reasons.
There is a number of people who have simply refused to follow the rules and chairman of the National Police Chiefs’ Council, Martin Hewitt, called those people who have not followed the rules as stubborn we are 10 months in and the rules are clear.
Those who choose not to follow the rules are simply choosing to endanger us all, by hosting parties, gatherings and events.
Martin Hewitt confirmed that “police officers are not immune from the virus” refusing to do the right thing is simple. Police officers will enforce rule breakers and you will be fined.
You must ask yourself before leaving the house is this travel essential, and when you do leave the home you mist stay local.
Ms Patel confirmed she believes that the government believe the rules are clear and the news are firm, The rules are tough enough as 45,000 people have been fined.
The more we follow the rules the more we can drive this virus down, stick with the rules think about your actions, stay at home and stay local.
