Suffolk chief constable Steve Jupp asks public to work with police to ensure safety during coronavirus crisis
Suffolk's chief constable has issued a plea to members of the public to ensure that residents are kept safe during the coronavirus crisis.
In a video posted by Suffolk Police, Steve Jupp asked that residents work with police to ensure that the lockdown measures laid out by Boris Johnson, the prime minister, on Monday are complied with.
"You will see some guidance come out in the next few days about the new powers which we will enforce but I don't want us to enforce it," he said.
"I want us to work together collaboratively so that we can ensure that we can keep our nation safe, so that we can ensure that Suffolk county is kept safe."
He also assured the public that the police will still be there 'to fight crime'.
