A total of 40 warnings were given to people yesterday, Friday, April 10, by police officers in Suffolk to those in public or gathered at other addresses as part of the government restrictions to stay home and stay safe.
In all Suffolk Constabulary received 175 calls from members of the public reporting people ignoring the regulations.
The message remains the same over the rest of the Easter weekend, for people to follow the government advice on social distancing. Unless your travel is essential, the only plans you should be making are to stay home and stay safe in order to protect the NHS and save lives.
Police will continue to engage, educate and encourage with members of the public. The more the public comply with the restrictions now the more lives will be saved.
