This followed the update below, circulated by the Communications Officer of Thames Valley Police on Tuesday, 24th March:
We understand that the new Government measures will undoubtedly have a major impact on you all and whilst this is difficult, it is a necessary adjustment. This is about protecting yourselves, each other and the emergency services working hard to keep you safe.
We ask you all to please take notice of the new direction from government and stay at home to help the national effort to stop the spread of the virus.
Thames Valley Police will, as always, police with respect and engagement and we will continue our day to day policing and we will be working with our communities so they understand the importance of complying with the government direction.
We continue to follow government, Public Health England and the National Police Chief’s Council’s direction in the fight against Coronavirus.
We have tried and tested contingency plans in operation to enable us to continue to protect the most vulnerable in society and respond to where the need is most.
All precautions are being taken in order to protect our officers and staff so that we continue to police the Thames Valley.
Thank you for your support.
