This is a difficult period and one that everyone has to adapt to and make huge changes to ensure we limit the spread of the coronavirus.
GMP Federation Chair Stu Berry has echoed the message from Chief Constable Ian Hopkins.
Stu said: "This is a difficult and challenging period for our members.
"No one wants to be in this situation. But we are confident that our members will rise to that challenge.
"It's very important that the public play their part over coming weeks - we can't do this without them. Without their help, we will find this whole situation very difficult to control.
"This is to save lives but with the public’s help we can get on top of it.
"We police by consent. Please help us to help you."
