No COVID19 fixed penalty notices issued by Wiltshire Police for two weeks
Wiltshire Police has not issued any fixed penalty notices for breaches of the COVID19 legislation for the past two weeks.
The overall demand on the Force for COVID19-related matters also continues to fall, with the lowest number of related crimes and incidents since the beginning of the pandemic.
Between Monday 8 June - 14 June, the Force recorded:
One incident linked to COVID19 - compared to 12 the week before
Five crimes linked to COVID19 - the same number as the week before
Issued zero Fixed Penalty Notices (FPNs) for the second week running
One arrest for a breach of the COVID legislation.
Chief Constable Kier Pritchard said: "Thankfully we are continuing to see a drop in the number of reports coming into Wiltshire Police, relating to COVID19, and it is clear that any issues we do see are isolated incidents rather than a trend of people choosing to flout the rules.
"However, we are not complacent, and this weekend will see events which could potentially prompt people to take risks.
"Most notably it is Summer Solstice, which would usually see thousands of people flocking to sites in Wiltshire to mark the occasion.
"However, this year, the stones at both Stonehenge and Avebury are closed to the public so please do not travel there.
"English Heritage will be livestreaming the event from Stonehenge so we urge you to be safe, be sensible and celebrate at home this year."
Police and Crime Commissioner Angus Macpherson said: "I am pleased to see that our COVID19 policing figures are continuing to drop, providing reassurance that the overwhelming majority of people are listening to the Government advice and keeping themselves safe.
"A few weeks ago we invited people to submit questions about how Wiltshire Police has responded to the pandemic, and we received questions on a wide range of topics.
"These have now been answered by myself and the Chief Constable, and we are posting a series of short videos on the Wiltshire Police and Wiltshire and Swindon PCC Facebook pages, so please ensure you are following us on social media to view these."
