Protect the Protectors
Protect the Protectors is a multi-faceted campaign seeking to safeguard the physical and mental wellbeing of police officers. Our aims are tougher sentences for those who assault police officers and other emergency services, in addition to ensuring officers have the right protective tools and equipment and, in the case of responders, are not unfairly prosecuted for exceeding speed limits. British Transport Police and the Prison Officers Association (POA) have signed up to partner PFEW in the campaign.
The campaign includes a series of video and written case studies with officers, like Laura Gargett and Vaughan Lowe below, giving first hand accounts of being assaulted or subjected to prosecution and/or disciplinary proceedings following a police response drive.
