West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner accused of wanting power after seeking permission to enter the homes of anyone suspected of breaking the rules

The police should be able to force entry into homes if they suspect that the lockdown rules have been violated, the police and the West Midlands Police Commissioner have requested

David Jamieson said the measures would be used against anyone who materially disregards the restrictions and refuses to let officials into their homes

He said being allowed to enter such premises would help officials enforce the law – but he faced a backlash led by controversial actor Laurence Fox

The West Midlands Police are expected to release further details of a tough new crackdown on Covid floaters during the Atest lockdown

Mr. Jamieson, the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner, said now that the third lockdown has taken place, the officers’ powers need to be increased

He said, “When the police are faced with the most serious and dangerous violations of Covid regulations, they need the right powers to enforce the rule of law

???? At the moment, officials are required to apply alternative laws, such as B. Antisocial rules of conduct or licensing laws to enter property and disrupt large parties The specific Covid laws exist in Scotland so we should have them here as well

“It is critical that the police are able to act quickly and that the law be clear and precise”I raised this with the Minister of Police before and I urge him again to ensure that the police have the right tools to do the work we are asked to do”

But he said the police would not use these powers for “suspected minor violations of the Covid laws”? ????

Police in London have already warned Flouter to expect more fines, and also that officers will do spot checks and ask people where they are going

He wrote, “Don’t be David Jamieson Be the polar opposite of David Jamieson David Jamieson Don’t care about the best of your heart David Jamieson has a desire for power that matters to him”

City police said officers had been instructed to impose fines faster on those who break the regulations and do not wear a face mask

A spokesman said: “With fewer ‘reasonable excuses’ for people away from the regulations, Londoners can expect officials to be more curious about why they’re seeing them on the go

“If officials identify people not to be home for no legitimate reason, they can expect officials to move faster to enforcement”

As of 31 December 2020 was a total of 7 in the West Midlands872 deaths recorded

* The deaths recorded by Public Health England occurred within 28 days of a positive coronavirus test

And even senior cops are not immune – an inspector reveals he was stopped and asked where he was going

Insp Lee Wiggan tweeted, “On my way to a meeting at headquarters, @BrumCityWMP asked me to explain my reason for the city Keep up the good work team”
