The Home Office has been working closely with the National Police Chiefs’ Council throughout the Covid-19 crisis, to ensure they have sufficient resourcing and capabilities to manage public order, are able to provide required support for frontline police officers and to back the police when it comes to law enforcement.

Significant work has also been undertaken by National Policing Leads to prepare for public disorder whilst Covid-19 restrictions remain in place. We fully back the police in taking a firm stance against those who significantly disrupt the lives of others with unlawful behaviour and the Home Office will continue to work closely with them on this.
