Message from ACC Maggie Blyth following the easing of national health restrictions

Alert message sent 12/04/2021 10:53:00

Information sent on behalf of Hampshire Constabulary


Dear residents,

Today (April 12) marks the start of some easing of restrictions and while the move towards ‘normal’ life is welcome, there are rules still in place and that’s important to remember when planning activities with family and friends. We can’t become complacent and risk undermining what we’ve achieved so far.

We are still in the midst of a pandemic and everyone’s priority needs to be the safety of themselves and others.

It’s important to remember that you can only meet friends and family outdoors, and that the rule of six or two households remains in place.

We will continue to use the tried and tested approach of engaging, explaining, and encouraging with those that we come into contact with in our communities. We will use enforcement as a last resort, but those involved in blatant breaches of the Health Protection Regulations, such as at indoor parties, can still expect to receive a fine.

Your local Neighbourhood Policing Teams have identified local areas that may see increased numbers of people outdoors and alongside our partners we have put in place regular patrols and will provide support to businesses and individuals as needed.

Stay safe everyone.
