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

Report a breach of COVID-19 restrictions

New public health regulations have granted police additional powers to enforce restrictions in line with the Government’s COVID-19 advice.

This includes the requirement to close businesses and premises, and enforce restrictions on movement and gatherings. Read the Government’s guidance on what you can and cannot do.

If you are concerned that an individual or business has significantly breached the restrictions, complete our online form.

If you are unable to use the online form, or the breach is happening now, call 101.

Your report will help us build a picture of where people appear to be or are breaching the Government’s advice on physical social distancing. This information will help to inform our policing patrols.

Immediate danger

Call 999 if there is an immediate or perceived threat to life, risk of serious damage to property or a serious offence is taking place.
