Surrey Police on coronavirus rules: "Follow the advice designed to keep us all safe"

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 1:23pm 24th March 2020.

Surrey Police is urging us to stick to the new rules announced by the prime minister last night (23 March) in the battle against coronavirus.

The force says it is still being worked out how the new rules restricting movement can be properly enforced.

Officers will have new powers as part of new legislation, to support efforts to slow the spread of Covid-19.

A statement from the force's  Assistant Chief Constable says it is working with the government through the national police body.

Dave Miller says they are urging everyone to follow the advice designed to keep us safe.

Here is the statement in full, released last night (23 March):

"Tonight the Government announced further restrictions on public life to slow the impact of the coronavirus, prevent death and to further protect the resources of the NHS.

"The Prime Minister has also announced that new powers will be given to the police and local authorities as part new legislation to support this national effort.

"We are working with the Government through the national police body to consider how these new rules can be most effectively enforced. 

"The majority of people are already making real sacrifices to save lives and we urge everyone in Surrey to follow the advice that is designed to keep us all safe."
