“Officers will maintain their engage, explain and encourage approach but will not hesitate to carry out enforcement action if there is an obvious breaking of the rules.
“I would like to thank the people of Staffordshire for doing all they can to stick to the latest guidelines and wish everyone a happy and peaceful Easter.”
