Protecting the city centre during COVID-19

News story
Tuesday 24 Mar 2020

We have been liaising with the Police about the specific measures to protect the city centre during the COVID-19 response.

Police have confirmed that:

  • Patrols, visibility and deployment in the city centre will be unaffected at all alert levels
  • Additional resources and staff will be used to protect the security of closed businesses in the city centre and those essential services that continue to operate

Securing your premises

We also would like to remind all businesses to make sure they have fully secured their premises prior to closure. This includes ensuring locks and alarms are in place and that valuable items or stock are placed in either locked storerooms or in the most secure locations within their premises.
