Two police officers were assaulted in York on Friday night (November 17).

On Twitter @PC541NYP stated:

  • Such a busy and demanding night shift for band 2 in York.

    Violence, damage, RTCs, public order… you name it we’ve dealt with it.

    My colleague and I were also assaulted at an incident involving a drunk male – we are both fine but it simply isn’t acceptable.

The message drew a robust response from North Yorkshire Police Deputy Chief Constable Phil Cain: “Thank you for all the hard work overnight.

“Hopefully the new protect the protectors legislation will make a difference in courts.”

He said Chief Constable Lisa Winward “ensures a statement accompanies files for assaulted officers and staff to highlight the impact on those who are working to keep others safe”.
