How can I assist the police at this time?
The best way to assist the police at this time is to follow government guidelines and stay at home. This will reduce pressure on policing services who will need to enforce the restrictions on businesses opening and movement of people, if needed.
The police service, like other emergency services, will be working hard to keep you safe at this challenging time. If you need the assistance of the police, then please still make contact – you can find advice and guidance on how to do this under the "contacting the police (emergency and non-emergency)" tab above.
