How can I assist the police at this time?
The main advice is to follow the government guidelines and stay at home. This will reduce pressure on policing services who will need to enforce the restrictions on business 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 still make contact – please see below the advice on how to contact the police.
