Answer for Police assaults on Duty

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The number of MPS police officers (including special constables) that were injured as a result of being physically assaulted while on duty during the last Financial Year (2014/15) is provided below.

This does not necessarily represent the total number of assaults, as assaults that do not result in injury (including non-injury assaults, verbal assaults, being spat at, etc.) are not recorded on MetAIR (the MPS Accident/Injury recording system).
