Coronavirus: A Guide for Police Forces

1 April 2020

In the light of the pressures, and challenging responsibilities, placed on the police service during these difficult times, we thought that the below guide may be useful to those who provide advice to officers and staff.

It is a comprehensive guide to assist in the interpretation and application of the new public health measures insofar as they affect the police service, collecting the issues together in one place – for ease of reference, or distribution to others.

We hope that you find it helpful.  If you have any specific requests in relation to the policing response to the C-19 pandemic, then please do not hesitate to contact Chambers (we remain fully operational).
