This from Assistant Chief Constable Mike Walker, North Yorkshire Police:

  • North Yorkshire Police has plans in place to maintain policing services across the county and mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the organisation.

    The position is reviewed daily and although the situation has been business as usual, we expect this to alter over the coming weeks.

    At the moment the public won’t see a difference in policing in the county other than increased hygiene practices, protective equipment if necessary and other practical measures taken to protect our workforce.

    However, this may change over the coming weeks and plans are in place to respond to what is a rapid and fast-moving situation.
