I wanted to reassure you that our policing plan remains the same and officers continue to police London as they have over the past few weeks.
We will continue to have a visible policing presence in and amongst our communities and will be responding as and where we are needed.
UPDATE: Closure of hospitality facilities
Following the announcement on Friday (20 March 2020) about the closure of hospitality and leisure facilities, we have seen that most venues are following the government’s advice. This is as anticipated and no significant policing issues have arisen. CN BCU officers are following the advice from the National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) and if we see specified businesses open, we will remind them of the Government advice.
Pleasingly we have not seen a significant rise in hate crime, but please do remind those in your communities to continue to report it, and encourage others to, where they see it.
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any further questions.
