Police chief thanks Lincolnshire public for support during pandemic

One of Lincolnshire's top police officers has praised the support of the public in their task of handling the coronavirus pandemic in the county

ACC Kerrin Wilson.

Assistant Chief Constable Kerrin Wilson has suggested that her officers could not have done it without residents' cooperation over these last few months since lockdown was declared and also thanked the public for their many kind gestures over the last few months, such as bags of chocolate treats left on police cars with the message "Thank you for all you do. Not all heroes wear capes."

ACC Wilson said: "On behalf of all officers and staff at Lincolnshire Police, we would like to express our sincere thanks for the gifts and hospitality given to us during the Coronavirus pandemic.

"The past few months in which we have been responding to the worldwide pandemic and policing Lincolnshire have been extremely challenging and a scenario we could never have foreseen. The assistance and support we have received from the people of Lincolnshire has been fantastic and the number of gifts and donations is an example of that.

"I know our officers and staff are very grateful for the kind gestures and very much appreciate the efforts people have gone to for us during this time. It’s a very nice reminder of how much the public value and appreciate our efforts and it certainly boosted morale.

"We would not have been able to respond to the pandemic in the manner we have without the public support we received, so thank you!"
