Police Scotland continues to use the 4E’s; Engage, Educate, Encourage and finally Enforce. This policy has helped to standardise the approach to difficult situations raised by the pandemic. The recent implementation of Tier 4 restrictions has returned the area, and Scotland, to a heightened vigilance. It is asked that everyone considers their personal accountability, when associating with others and remember the FACTS approach.
F (ace coverings)
A (void Crowds)
C (lean hands regularly)
T (wo Metre distancing)
S (elf Isolate and book a test if symptomatic)
It is strongly urged that should anyone become aware of any gatherings taking place within the K&M area that contravene the guidelines, then a call is immediately made to the Police. Police Scotland remain committed to attending every Covid related call and will treat persons found breaching these safety measures in a robust manner.
Two drug search warrants were executed, with positive interventions to the supply, possession and distribution of drugs within the area. Further warrants have been craved and will be actioned in January.
