GP/OKCID security report – April 2020

There has been an impressive 56.7% decrease in incidents of crime in April compared to March, along with a total of 6 arrests made for housebreaking and theft. We commend our team for being on the front lines during these trying times – working hard each day despite these stressful circumstances.

Despite this good news, we are still dealing with individuals disobeying lockdown phase 4 regulations; specifically exercise regulations. Our team are being as proactive as possible and playing their part, and we ask that you play yours by staying at home – for the sake of your family, friends, and the wider community’s health and safety. As a recap, national exercise guidelines are being strictly regulated, and there is a zero-tolerance approach: Remember the following:

  1. Wear a mask while out
  2. You may walk/ run/ cycle on the paved areas only
  3. You may not drive to perform your exercise of choice, you may only walk/ run/ cycle from your residential address
  4. All public exercise must stop at 9am.
  5. Grassed areas and beaches are off limits.

National parks remain closed to the public during stage 4 of lockdown, regardless of whether they fall within a 5km radius of your home. Please stay safe and healthy while continuing to help flatten the curve.
