Suffolk Constabulary has thanked the public and businesses, following the recent plea urging them to comply with government measures restricting people's movements to tackle Coronavirus.
Officers were given the powers at the end of last month, to fine people who refuse to stay at home and only go outside if they have a 'reasonable excuse'.
Chief Constable, Steve Jupp has said that the "Overall, the message does seem to be getting through - compliance with these regulations is an absolute priority to save people's lives and protect the NHS.”
He added that "We will continue to police by consent. We will engage, explain the circumstances and encourage people to do the right thing in complying with the government request.”
Suffolk Police can issue penalty notices of £30, rising to £60 if not paid within 28 days, where they have reason to believe there has been an offence under the regulations.
Steve Jupp also paid tribute to all police officers and staff who alongside emergency workers, NHS staff and other key workers are on the frontline - and said that they are doing outstanding work in challenging times.
