Sussex Police and government rules

Ashdown Forest

Uckfield FM contacted Sussex Police regarding leaving home to travel to exercise or walk the dogs.

A Police spokesperson said:

‘We will continue our day to day policing, which includes patrolling public roads and streets and ensuring members of the public are adhering to the new rules set out by government’

‘We will engage, explain and encourage people to do the right thing in complying with the government’s instructions. If necessary, we will take enforcement action if people are not listening, or doing the right thing and therefore putting others at risk’
