Leicestershire Police Federation were made aware of in the early hours of this morning of an incident during which an officer was injured.
Federation Secretary Matt Robinson says:
It’s always difficult to hear news of a colleague getting injured whilst on duty especially in these circumstances.
Deliberately driving a vehicle at an officer is nothing more than an attempt to take a life.
We are pleased that people are in custody in relation to this matter.
This incident brings into focus the risks that police officers are expected to take as part of their job to keep communities safe.
We have been in contact with the officer and will be providing all the support and assistance required to him and his family.
