Report a breach of Covid-19 (Coronavirus) guidance


In an emergency, always dial 999. This includes:

  • When there is a threat to life (including road traffic collisions where persons are injured, the road is blocked or a vehicle involved in the collision has failed to stop)
  • Violence to a person or damage to property is imminent.
  • A serious offence is in progress.
  • A suspected offender is still at the scene of an incident or any delay in reporting the incident may prevent the offender being apprehended.
  • Serious disruption to the public is currently taking place, or is likely to take place.

The government has set out new rules to state people should stay at home and all retailers selling non-essential goods and other non-essential premises should be closed, in the fight against Covid-19. Full information is provided here.

Additional powers have been granted to the police to enforce these rules.

To report anything which goes outside of the government rules, you can do so using the form below. To report a non COVID-19 Guidance breach, use our Incident Report Form.
