CPS prosecuting 50 assaults on emergency workers every day

SHARE:

The CPS has prosecuted more than 50 assaults a day in the first year of legislation making attacks on emergency workers a specific offence, new figures show. 
 
Between November 2018 and 2019, almost 20,000 offences were charged under the Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Act – three-quarters of which were assault by beating.
 
A review sample revealed nine in ten assaults were against police officers – almost always when the attacker was intoxicated on drink or drugs and being arrested for an unrelated offence.
 
Spitting was common but the violence perpetrated was wide-ranging and included kicking, punching, head-butting, slapping and biting.
 
The CPS data is based on the number of offences charged, rather than individual defendants.
 
Ministry of Justice figures for 2018, based on the first cases to go through the courts, show a conviction rate of 90 per cent.
 
Following a series of high-profile assaults last summer, the Director of Public Prosecutions met with police colleagues to discuss their concerns about rising levels of violence towards officers.
 
In response, the CPS has issued revised guidance to prosecutors clarifying our approach to these cases and we have also published a joint agreement with emergency services chiefs across the country. 
 
Max Hill QC, Director of Public Prosecutions, said: “Emergency workers provide a vital public service – the fact they endure vile abuse like spitting and even physical assault in the course of their duties is appalling and unacceptable. These attacks must never be considered as ‘just part of the job’.
 
“These are serious crimes and it is encouraging to see our prosecutors have used the new legal powers to bring offenders to justice. 
 
“Having been made aware of police concerns during the first year of this new legislation, I have met with senior officers and the CPS has updated legal guidance to strengthen our approach to these appalling offences."

A new joint agreement has been struck between partners at the National Police Chiefs Council, NHS England, HM Prison Service and the National Fire Chiefs Council, which sets out efforts to prosecute cases robustly and support staff.

Mr Hill added: “We want to send a strong message that this deplorable behaviour will be met with the full force of the law.”

• Between November 2018 and 2019, 19,771 offences were prosecuted – of which 14,372 were assaults by beating, 5,362 common assault, 36 attempted assaults and one aiding/abetting an assault.
