More than 200 citizens complain to Durham police under Emergency Management Act

Durham police say so far, they’ve had 210 complaints from citizens under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act.

Spokesperson Dave Selby says the nature of the complaints is evolving.

“Most of those started out as business-related, like, non-essential businesses,” explained Selby. “But now because of the warm weather, they’re turning into social gathering complaints.”

He says they haven’t ticketed yet.

“At this point, we’re doing education first,” shared Selby. “We’re trying to talk to people and make sure they understand the gravity of the situation and the hefty fines they might get.”

Fines start at $750 per occurrence, per person and you can be charged multiple days in a row.
