Chief Constable speaks out on new CoVID-19 restrictions

Our Chief Constable has appealed for people across the West Midlands to adhere to tighter CoVID-19 restrictions imposed in a bid to again stifle the spread of the disease.

In a new video Dave Thompson says he understands it’s been a “tough time” and frustrating that limits on socialising have again been introduced just when people were enjoying the chance to spend more time with friends and family.

He said: “We were just getting used to society opening up more, seeing friends, family, loved ones and getting together – but it’s important we all take responsibility to tackle the spread of CoVID-19.

“By all acting responsibly we can reduce the risk of harm to our loved ones and keep our communities safer.”

Mr Thompson stressed that our officers will again aim to educate and encourage compliance with the restrictions and will focus efforts on disrupting flagrant breaches, such as large gatherings or unlicensed music events.
