Police loud music, parties warning

Police today warned against “house parties” over the Covid-19 crisis.

Assistant Commissioner of Police Martin Weekes said police had received several calls to complain about loud music and parties.

Mr Weekes said: “The BPS has also received reports that persons are moving from house to house to attend parties, contrary to the shelter in place regulations.

“We emphasise, the BPS will attend any reports of groups gathering to ensure that the shelter in place regulations are not being contravened.

“However, unless it appears that offences are being committed officers will not enter premises. This in order to keep appropriate social distancing.”

Mr Weekes said members of the public should consider their neighbours when playing loud music and to avoid it late at night.

But he added that tolerance should be shown to people celebrating the holiday weekend.

Mr Weekes said: “As we all are aware, the curfews prevent us all from celebrating in the normal ways.

“Only call the BPS to attend where the noise becomes excessive.”
