How we’re working during the Covid-19 outbreak

Merseyside / March 20

In support of the governmental advice relating to the Covid-19 Coronavirus outbreak, the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Merseyside (OPCC) has changed its working arrangements.

To play our part in minimising the spread of Coronavirus, OPCC staff are limiting their personal contact and working remotely.

The team at the OPCC will operate as normally as possible during this period, despite the challenging circumstances that the current situation places us all in.

You can continue to contact us as normal by email at [email protected] or by phone at 0151 777 5155.

The Commissioner has also cancelled all public engagements and meetings. She continues to work very closely with the Chief Constable to ensure the public continues to receive an appropriate policing response at this time and that police officers and staff receive the support they need to carry out their work in difficult circumstances.

We will continue to closely monitor government advice around social distancing and review our current operations as and when required.

What you need to do

Stay at home

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)

  • If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times

  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

Do not meet others, even friends or family. You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.
