Violence and aggression towards Staff

Back to all Motions

2008 Police Staff Service Group Conference
25 June 2008

Conference is concerned that violence and aggression towards Police Staff members is on the increase. Conference notes the necessary personal protective equipment and training for front line operational staff is not forthcoming from certain forces. Conference believes that this training and basic equipment is sadly a necessity in the modern policing environment and that the failure to provide this equipment is putting our members at risk.

Conference call upon the Service Group Executive to make representations to the National Police Improvement Agency (NPIA) with a view to encouraging forces to supply the necessary equipment and training.
