The UK’s Covid Marshalls, who have been termed “Covid Wombles”, have been a presence on the UK streets since September however new guideline which were implemented recently will now see each of the Marshalls fitted with body cams to film rule breachers in an effort to ensure appropriate evidence for fining and prosecution.
It has also been suggested that their roles could be increased and that the Marshalls would receive bodyguard training.
A new £30m package for local regions includes the financial support to pay for the Covid Marshalls who have been instructed to specifically target traditionally large group events and venues such as weddings and pubs to catch rule-breakers.
Until now the Marshalls have undertaken a purely advisory role in support of the police how the move to implement a greater range of training could suggest that the government is intending to increase their role and level of authority.
