Police Scotland

From today, our officers have enhanced powers to safeguard the public and ensure we all comply with legislation designed to stop the spread of #coronavirus.

Our approach will take the following 4 steps:

Engage, explain, encourage, and enforce if necessary.

This means that breaking the new rules now constitutes a criminal offence which could result in a fine for offenders. The power to enforce this legislation will be used only as a last resort.

What does this mean for you, and what exactly does enforcement look like?
