Coronavirus (COVID-19): the policing response and what you need to know

COVID-19 FPNs issued to Police Officers

Date of request: January 25, 2021
Reference: 104/21

Request

I am requesting the following information under the Freedom of Information Act (2000).

  • The total number of fixed penalty notices issued to serving police officers between March 27 2020 and January 25 2021 who have contravened the Coronavirus Act 2000 and all other emergency health protection regulations.

Please may this information include: date notice was issued, job title of the officer, age and gender of officer and the reason for issue

Response

As of the date of your request, our Professional Standards Department have not been made aware of any employee within Avon and Somerset Constabulary disclosing that they have been issued a FPN for breaches of Covid-19 regulations.

There is no requirement for occupation to be captured in relation to any fixed penalty notices (FPNs) issued for Covid-19 breaches. However it should be noted that officers and staff members of Avon and Somerset Constabulary are expected to disclose this information to our Professional Standards Department which will be dealt with under the Police Conduct Regulations.
