Our Colleagues at Police Federation of England and Wales officially launched the campaign #protecttheprotectors
Today marks the launch of our national campaign to ‘Protect The Protectors’ calling for better protection for police officers.
The campaign will call for:
- a change in legislation, leading to tougher sentences for those who assault emergency service workers
- better training and access to equipment – wider roll-out of protection measures, such as Taser, body worn video and spit guards
- more accurate data on police assaults
- improved welfare support.
