The practicalities of policing this lockdown will be challenging, but policing will do all it can to keep the public safe, but we need the public to support us, says National Chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales John Apter.

National Chair of the Police Federation of England and Wales John Apter said: “We are in unprecedented and uncertain times, with government advice frequently changing as COVID-19 affects more people.

“Saving lives and protecting the public is the number one priority for us all; and at his time of national crisis it is essential that we all come together and play our part in doing so.

“The practicalities of policing this lockdown will be challenging, but policing will do all it can to keep the public safe, but we need the public to support us. I ask that the public heed the advice and stay at home unless absolutely necessary. This will allow police officers to concentrate on keeping the streets safe and deal with all the regular calls we receive. This is about saving lives and supporting our NHS, I ask that the public gives us their support in this time of crisis."
