31 London police officers face £200 fines after haircut lockdown breach
The Met says it was a 'poor decision' to hire a barber to give cuts to 31 officers in the workplace.
Thirty-one Met Police officers who broke coronavirus rules to get haircuts are facing £200 fines.Two officers who hired a barber to give the cuts to staff at Bethnal Green Police Station, on 17 January, are also facing misconduct investigations, the Met Police said.
Under current lockdown restrictions in England, barbers and hairdressers are not allowed to work.Det Ch Supt Marcus Barnett said he was "deeply disappointed" in the officers."Although officers donated money to charity as part of the haircut, this does not excuse them from what was a very poor decision. I expect a lot more of them.
"Quite rightly, the public expect police to be role models in following the regulations, which are designed to prevent the spread of this deadly virus."The investigation comes after fines were handed out to nine other officers who were caught headtopics.com
All those officers were issued with a £200 fixed penalty notice. Read more: BBC News (UK) »

Sack immediately. After they have been going around telling everyone they should follow the rules? Sack the lot of them.

In this article Det Ch Supt Marcus Barnett said he was 'deeply disappointed' in the officers. Is his name really Barnett talking about haircuts 😂😂😂
I think just a warning would have been fine (no pun intended). Then try and organise something official for them all. Breaking Lockdown Rules is bad, but we also need to find solutions to things to maintain some sense of normality when we can. If a police officer breaks the law, do they still keep employment
