Community Engagement & Reassurance


Compliance with the Government’s regulations and guidance is still at a good level within K&M. The 4 E’s are still being employed by officers, and seems to be a successful approach at this time.

Thorough licenced premises checks remain in place in case there is 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.
