NEIGHBOURS BREACHING LOCKDOWN? REPORT THEM TO THE POLICE ONLINE

Published at:

Those breaching the lockdown rules put in place by the Government can now be reported to the directly to the Police using an online form. 

Island Echo has been inundated with phone calls, emails and messages from concerned readers reporting, to us, that Islanders are breaching the lockdown rules. Unfortunately, there is nothing that we can do, but Hampshire Constabulary has now come up with an easy-to-use solution for reporting such behaviour.

A new online tool has been made accessible giving Islanders the option to report an address where a breach is occurring or has occurred previously. This could be a residential or business address.

Although officers will always try to resolve things peacefully without enforcement, Police can issue fines and even arrest individuals who fail to comply.

It has been revealed tonight (Thursday) that 3 fines have now been issued on the Island.

It’s worth remembering that key workers come from all different walks of life and therefore there may be a genuine reason for someone doing something. However, large family BBQs (where those present don’t live together) is an example of a clear breach.

You can report an address by visiting https://www.hampshire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/c19/tell-us-about-possible-breach-coronavirus-measures/.

Yes I’ve heard in Nottingham the chief constable has threatened to search people’s shopping. Now that really is a bridge too far.

While I get that people should follow government advice and stay at home to protect ourselves and the NHS we also need to remember that we were also asked to be kind and considerate. This website does not promote this positive message. It would be far better for people to take responsibility for their own actions.

Why should we be doing the right thing and see idiots that are risking ours and everyone else’s lives because they believe it doesn’t apply to them?

This website like many others just does the government a massive favour, they don’t even need to try and divide us anymore, just put up a crappy story and wait for people to rip each other apart when we should be more United than ever

I totally agree with you here although unfortunately there is a very small.minority that seem to be spoiling it for the majority. Lifes are at risk although it is a very thin line here. Sad times

We are heading for a Police state. I read yesterday that soon Police could start searching shopping trolleys looking for non ‘essential’ items. I wonder how many people out and about haven’t got the virus, and don’t know anybody else with it!

Amazing how the police manage to have this little snitch line up and running so quickly. Contact them before this corona thing and report crimes and they couldn’t give a monkeys as were ‘too busy’ or (favorite excuse -) ‘not enough resources’. But now suddenly with the chance of easy judge/jury instant policing they manage to sit up and take notice??? Yes there are a very few minority of the public who rightly need pulling up BUT there are an increasing number of reports emerging of certain struggling police officers dragging their forces down, not least of all Nick Adderley… Read more »

Whilst there are indeed some IDIOTS and SELFISH people who are flouting the rules and deserve to be caught and fined, the vast majority of people are being sensible and considerate. Went for my exercise (walk) yesterday, and yes I saw other people, but EVERYONE I saw stayed at a very sensible distance from each other, plus I have noticed when having to go shopping, that people are taking a lot of care to avoid close proximity. As said, normally (and I know these are not normal times), the Police plead lack of availability or resources when you call them.… Read more »

I’ve seen ONE police van in Ryde since lockdown started! I live in the strand and the few times I’ve had to pop round to the shops I’ve seen plenty of people with children heading towards the sea front Also young lads on bikes cycling very close together! So police need to get down this way!

Latest news, “ Cabinet Minister Robert Jenrick ‘breaks lockdown rules twice’ by going to ‘second home’ 160 miles a trip.he is the Tory housing secretary by the way. So yes “don’t do as I do, do as I say!

Theresa.
Not actively defending the Minister, but please see today’s Sky News (it was an article originally in the Guardian).
There were extenuating and permitted circumstances.
The problem we are experiencing is “knee jerk reaction” to sometimes sensationalist articles.
Not so much Fake News, more lack of fact checking.

Please re-check the original source article (Guardian Newspaper).
There is a clarification on Sky News.
All too easy to ‘jump to conclusions’.
Think this was a case of lack of research before reporting!

For those who have seen my posts,and most of you seem to disagree with them( that’s your freedom of choice,at the moment) . I said ,don’t think you people are ready for whats coming. Turning people against each other is a great way to divide and conquer. When will you people wake up!!? Maybe when the banks use a bail in clause and starts to take money from your savings, admittedly it’s £100k or more,at the moment. If you think I’m lying or a conspiracy, google it,it’s legal. This is not scare mongering, this is fact. Watching with interest.

I agree with you mr justice. Everyone’s freedom of choice will be gone soon! Just look at what bill gates wants.. it’s shocking Id chips in everyone and if you don’t you won’t be able to work, shop, buy, sell. The government and wealthy will be in control.. of everyone. Like they are doing now. But sheep’s don’t see it. The media are good at brainwashing. Has been done for a very long time. Time to wake up and smell the bulls**t for what is really going on. The world will never be the same again. And more fool you… Read more »

there is contamination without the coronavirus, we have a diseased society and the police are part of the disease.. if anyone knows how to wash inside the cup not just the outside. then after speaking with some people including some police you may realise you have just got a whole lot filthier..so some people have been practicing distancing for years especially avoiding mouths……..

“Inform on your friends and neighbours for fun and profit”

Not sure if I’m in communist era Russia or a dystopian novel.

Given that most of us are following the rules surely the resources needed to set up and run this thing could have been put to a more pressing use?
