A police force is establishing a dedicated team to attend reports of breaches of Covid-19 regulations.
Avon and Somerset Police are using extra funding provided by the Government for forces to tackle the pandemic.
Approximately £680,000 has been granted to Avon and Somerset to fund the Covid-19 team.
Assistant Chief Constable Nikki Watson, of Avon and Somerset Police, said demand for non-Covid police matters had dropped during the national lockdown.
"However, the situation is different six months on, as demand for police attendance has increased to pre-lockdown levels," she said.
"Officers have responded magnificently, but combining traditional policing priorities with additional Covid-19 work is a challenge for forces across the country.
"By creating this dedicated team, it will enable those officers to concentrate on dealing with reports coming in and proactively police areas where problems have previously occurred."
Response and neighbourhood officers will continue to enforce Covid-19 rules where necessary.
The force has dedicated resources in the control room and in communities, who will respond to breaches of Covid-19 regulations reported to the police seven days a week.
Since lockdown was introduced in March, the force has issued 413 fixed penalty notices, including 37 since the start of October.
