Coronavirus: Police employees told to take leave

From Morning Report, 8:23 am on 30 March 2020

Some police employees who wish to remain in isolation because of the Covid-19 pandemic are being told they'll have to take unpaid leave during the lockdown.

The police are offering special leave to employees in the first instance, but have advised staff they'll have to take annual leave until it's used up.

Then they won't be paid at all.

Police reporter Ben Strang has the details.
