The role of the Leicestershire police has always been to protect our communities. As the country is currently facing a National Emergency from the Coronavirus pandemic, the Chief Constable from the Leicestershire Police has sent a message reassuring that their commitment hasn’t changed. Their main aim is still to protect Leicestershire citizens.
Other key points were included in the message. Some examples are:
- The importance of staying at home. Staying at home to reduce the amount of further cases of COVID-19 is vital if we are to give our colleagues in the NHS a chance to fight against Coronavirus.
- The rapid changes of the legislation. He encourages people to follow the Public Health England and Government guidance.
- The partnership with people around LLR to deal with various aspects of the COVID-19 crisis. He also emphasised that councils, the NHS, the military, volunteer groups and other blue light services are all working hard to protect vulnerable residents. They also work to enforce the Law and take pressure off NHS staff.
- The need to report non-emergency matters online via http://www.leicspolice.co.uk. If you have an emergency call 999.
Finally, he emphasised the need to work as a community to overcome the virus. In addition, he remind people that their behaviours can save lives.
