Statement on coronavirus regulations at Christmas

A statement has been released by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner following today's reports in regards to the enforcement of coronavirus regulations at Christmas.

A spokesperson for the PCC said: “The PCC Jane Kennedy’s position is, as she said last week, that it is too early to say what, if any, restrictions will be in place for Christmas.

“Merseyside Police will continue to do what they have been doing throughout this pandemic, which is to explain to the public what the restrictions require, including changes to the restrictions, and both engage with and encourage members of the public to abide by the restrictions. Enforcement is always a last resort but will be used where necessary.”

Jane wants your views on policing funding today...

The Police Commissioner has to set the police budget soon.

She wants your views on  if you would be willing to contribute an extra 19p a week in your council tax  to enable the Chief Constable to recruit 160 new police officers next year, as well help balance the budget and protect jobs?

Without the extra funding the Commissioner will have to reduce the budget, the recruitment of new officers can’t
go ahead and the Chief Constable will be required to cut back on the service again.
