More rigorous enforcement.
Police Scotland should reconsider their approach to enforcement during this coronavirus crisis. Human rights are important but the rights of people to do what they want are not as important as the rights of people to be protected from the spread of the disease as a result of irresponsible and selfish behaviour. Mr Livingstone's message always has an unfortunate and frustrating emphasis on the human rights of people not following the rules. I live in a remote rural area of Scotland and non compliance to guidance and legislation is a cause of serious concern within communities. The local newspaper reports this weekly. I have witnessed the movement of people between city and holiday homes, camping trips, outdoor parties and mixing of households. The focus for Police Scotland (whose strap line is Keeping People Safe) should be to protect those who comply, send a clear message to those who don't and be rigorous in enforcement.
Why the contribution is important
Communities need to have confidence that Police Scotland will be Keeping People Safe during this pandemic.
