Statement from PCVC Steve White
Acting Durham Police, Crime and Victims’ Commissioner, Steve White said: “I am grateful to the Chief Constable for the work that the constabulary has conducted in extremely difficult circumstances and the comprehensive and proportionate consideration of the facts. I felt it important that the people of Durham and Darlington could see that the Force is, and remains fair in its approach to policing the issues arising out of the Covid-19 crisis and that it will continue to police without fear or favour.”
“I am sure that the communities across the Force area will continue to do their very best in preventing the spread of this disease and will continue to support the Force as it works hard to decipher and provide education to the public as it polices the changing advice, regulations and legislation. Clarity is paramount if we are to defeat this threat, and clarity has now been provided by the Force in relation to the matter concerning Mr Cummings as things stood on the dates in question.”
