Community Engagement & Reassurance:
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 continued implementation of Tier 4 restrictions has returned the area to a heightened state of 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)
The frequency of calls relating to COVID non-compliance has reduced and officers within K&M would like to thank our communities for continuing to pro-actively safeguard each other by following the National Guidance.
2 Drug search warrants were executed within K&M during January, with positive interventions to the supply, possession and distribution of drugs within the area. 1 of the warrants led to a seizure of £20.000 worth of drugs (Street value).
Further warrants have been craved and will be actioned in February 2021.
