Work To Do On North Yorkshire's Approach To New Covid-19 Regulations

Published by Karen Liu at 1:21pm 16th July 2020.

North Yorkshire Police says there is work to do on its approach to the new regulations.

It is as face masks and face coverings will be made mandatory from Friday 24th July in shops and supermarkets.

The force's Assistant Chief Constable, Mike Walker, is leading the response to Covid-19 in North Yorkshire.

He said:

"It's important to note that throughout, what we've adopted is the four 'E's' approach; which is to engage with people, to explain  the regulations, to encourage people if they're not adhering to the regulations and to enforce.

North Yorkshire Police have issued more fixed penalty notices than any other force in the country. That's simply because North Yorkshire Police has taken the obligiation to protect the public very, very seriously. I'd like to re-iterate that we'll continue to do that."
