WREXHAM’S police officers have been out and about in town – but there is a reason that they are keeping their distance.

The officers have been advising the public to abide by the government guidelines and to remain at home unless absolutely necessary.

They are also practicing what they preach and are keeping two metres away from other people wherever possible.

In the light of the latest Government advice, people in North Wales will now see a different policing approach. This will see incidents risk assessed and prioritised appropriately

The Leader:

Getting the message out are PSCO Dave Smith and Temporary Town Inspector Claire McGrady

Sgt Matt Subacchi, of Wrexham Town Police, explained that this means officers wouldn’t be entering people’s homes in the line of their normal duties – but assured people that police will enter properties if immediate help or support is required.

He added that, as always, police will be there to provide assistance, reassurance and quality policing service to the public.

Over the past few days, the town officers have been getting the message out their that people can make a difference by following the latest guidelines.

PC Dave Smith of Wrexham Neighbourhood Policing team said: “The message is clear, stay at home. Ignoring the government advice has serious consequences on us all and you will risk the lives of your family and friends. We are all in this together and we need your support more than ever. Stay at home, reduce demand on our emergency services and help save lives, by doing this you really will make a difference”

The Leader:

Keep your distance!

The latest Government advice states:

• Stay at home

• Only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work

• Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people

• Wash your hands as soon as you get home
