The National Police Chiefs Council (NPCC) has confirmed that officers are being told not to install the NHS Covid-19 app on their work smartphones.
A Lancashire police source has confirmed to the BBC that Lancashire police officers have been told not to install the track and trace app on their work phones and also told not to carry their personal phone with them if the track and trace app has been installed.
The BBC contacted Lancashire police force after a source claimed the advice had been given because of “security reasons”.

Either that or Lancashire police are not affected by Covid-19?
