You must comply, say police

Section:   | Tags: ,

POLICE Scotland’s top cop says he expects everyone to comply with the new social distancing measures announced by the Government last night.

Chief Constable Iain Livingstone QPM said: “We are fully behind the new measures announced by the UK and Scottish Governments to increase social distancing, and I urge and expect everyone to comply with them.

“We are aware of the proposed legislation in relation to coronavirus and are carefully considering the implications in this very fast moving situation, which presents the gravest of threats to the nation.

“In the meantime, Police Scotland has a clear, positive duty to both protect life and improve the safety and wellbeing of people across Scotland, while supporting the government and health agencies in our fight against this pandemic.”

He revealed that police patrols will be increased in key areas of Scotland ‘to engage with and provide guidance to anyone in contravention of the measures’.
