Tougher sentences for those who assault emergency service workers

Police Federation of England and Wales started this petition to Sajid Javid (Home Secretary)

Ever turned up to work and been punched in the face for doing your job? Or been pelted with bricks? Or verbally abused? Sadly this is a reality for many police, fire and ambulance staff. 

Our emergency workers need your support. Being assaulted as they help to protect communities and save lives is not part of the job. 

To show your support, sign our petition calling for a change in legislation for harsher sentences for those who attack the people we all rely on.

 You can make a difference. Help us to #ProtectTheProtectors.
