Community Engagement & Reassurance


Compliance with the Government’s regulations and guidance is still at a good level within K&M. There have only been a few minor issues regarding large numbers gathering and all have dispersed without resorting to tickets. The 4 E’s are still being employed by officers, and seems to be a successful approach at this time.

During the lockdown in Aberdeen, more of the Community Policing Team were deployed to make licenced premises checks in case there was irresponsible management of the premises and failure to adhere to the track and trace protocols. Most premises had systems in place, although not necessarily following the same format.
