Enough is Enough

This petition had 110 supporters

The Examiner is urging the state government to look at the current legislation around assaults on police and consider extending it to provide protection for officers even when they are not in uniform.

Here's why

News of a targeted attack on a Tasmania Police officer who was trying to enjoy a night out has sparked debate within the community.

It is not the first time an officer has been assaulted, but The Examiner wants it to be the last.

Launching the Enough is Enough campaign in July, The Examiner is inviting the community to stand behind the state’s frontline workers and demand change.

By signing this petition you also pledge to lead by example and always treat emergency service workers with respect.
