COVID19: Chief praises Norfolk's residents

As the lock-down on the country continues, Norfolk Constabulary's Chief Constable praises the amazing support received so far by the communities of Norfolk as he promises his force will continue to police with their consent and 'seek to engage wherever possible' in his latest video message.

To date, Norfolk Constabulary has used its formal powers only once following an incident in Great Yarmouth on Monday 30 March 2020 when a woman repeatedly ignored officers' requests to return home on three separate occasions. The woman, who is aged in her 40s, was reported for the offence and will receive a summons to attend magistrates' court in due course.

In his video message, Mr Bailey urged that we all 'continue to respect the guidance, continue to understand why we're doing it and work with us to ensure that Norfolk comes through this crisis with as few deaths as is humanly possible'.
