What about my privacy?

Face Coverings

The Police Officer making the request will afford to you a reasonable degree of privacy in the circumstances. If reasonable, Police Officers may accede to your request for additional privacy for example by attendance at a Police station for adjustment or removal of your face covering.

However, if your request for Privacy cannot be complied with in the circumstances, you must still comply with the request by the Police Officer.

Police policy provides that when dealing with people who are wearing face coverings for cultural or religious reasons, Police Officers must ensure that they act with sensitivity towards the person's beliefs.
