Merseyside Chief Constable self-isolates and works from home

The Chief Constable of Merseyside Police, Andy Cooke, is self-isolating after showing symptoms of COVID-19 “in line with national guidance”.

CC Cooke said he was continuing to fulfil his duties by working from home, which the force said he has the “capacity and technology” to do so.

He is in constant contact with Chief Officers and senior officers, as well as partners across the force area and nationally.

CC Cooke said: “The force is doing everything it can to keep up to speed with the challenges of the spread of this virus. Senior officers and supervisors are reviewing business continuity plans and putting measures in place to ensure we do everything possible to protect our officers and staff so that we can deliver an efficient and effective policing service to our local communities.

CC Cook said: “I didn’t want to put my colleagues at any potential risk.”

He went on to say: “There’s no doubt that in the coming weeks and months our officers and staff will face the same dilemma. It is going to be a tough ride for all organisations, big and small.

“Here at Merseyside Police we will continue to work together to protect our communities. We will make the right decisions for the right reasons and keep the service running whilst we provide support for our officers and staff and their families if they need it.”
