For the first time in nearly three weeks, no Covid notices, prohibition notices or Community Resolution Notices were issued as part of the ongoing operation to address antisocial and criminal activity in south Belfast, from yesterday afternoon through to the early hours of this morning.
Chief Inspector Gavin Kirkpatrick said, “While we tentatively welcome this improvement in behaviour and observation of the Health Protection Regulations, our joint approach, working alongside council officers and University representatives, to give advice and guidance before moving to issuing notices through to arrest if necessary will continue.
“We have consistently warned people of the risks and potential repercussions of not following the Health Protection Regulations, which not only puts themselves, their families and the local community at risk, but also risks impacting on their education and career opportunities.
“I would particularly appeal directly to young people who have moved to the area, to recognise the importance of being good neighbours.
"Please do not invite friends to visit or socialise in this residential area and follow the Health Protection Regulations to protect yourselves and others from Covid19.”
