Essex: Officers on patrol to keep you safe
Main article content
As we go into the weekend, with many restrictions having lifted, we’d like to reassure you that our officers are here to keep you safe.
You might see an increased presence in town centres as shops and pubs reopen.
Please make sure you’re doing the right things to keep each other safe, including social distancing and the wearing of face coverings where appropriate.
As always, we’ll be here if you need us, but please continue to look after each other and #StaySafeEssex.
We’ll still be taking a common-sense approach to policing the regulations - we’ll engage with people, explain the regulations, and encourage them to do the right thing.
When faced with clear and blatant breaches we will take appropriate enforcement action. This will include any reports of violence or abuse towards retail or hospitality staff.
