Police launch online reporting form
Police have launched an online form for people looking to report those breaching COVID-19 lockdown restrictions.
Police Commissioner Mike Bush urges people to use the online form instead of calling police.
“We know that people want to do the right thing if they see people flouting the restrictions, but we want to ease the load on the non-emergency phone number.
“Police will take the information reported online and make contact to remind those breaching the restrictions of their responsibilities.
It can be used to report isolation breaches or cases of businesses continuing to operate when they are not part of the essential workforce.
“We are continuing to take the approach of educating and informing people of their responsibilities in the first instance, but we will not hesitate to take enforcement action if people continue to ignore the restrictions.”
The online form is currently experiencing heavy traffic, and people using the platform are asked to be patient.
