Message from Marc Tarbit Commander of Milton Keynes police area

Alert message sent 03/04/2020 13:19:00

Information sent on behalf of Thames Valley Police

I understand that this is a difficult and worrying time for a lot people as we all make significant adjustments to our daily lives to follow the measures set out by the Government. These measures have been put in place to stop the spread of the virus, protect the NHS and save lives.  

Here in Milton Keynes our aim is still to prevent crime and protect the public, we are responding to those that need us and investigating crime. However, we will focus some of our patrol work in key locations to ensure that we continue to talk with people about the restrictions imposed by the Public Health (Coronavirus Act) Regulations. The Police have been given new powers to reinforce these regulations, however, we will only use these as a last resort. As a matter of routine we will be stopping members of the public and vehicles, so please don’t be alarmed if you are spoken to by officers.

I recognise that the uncertainty at this time, may make people anxious, but I want to reassure you that we are here to look after you. Our work to encourage compliance with the regulations is ultimately in everyone’s best interests and will help to speed up our return to normality.  

I am extremely grateful to those of you who are staying at home and only going out in specific circumstances. This will protect the NHS and enable medical staff to continue their magnificent work and save lives.

Thank you for your continued co-operation and support.

Superintendent Marc TarbitSent on behalf of Superintendent Marc Tarbit, Commander for Milton Keynes LPA (Local Policing Area)
