The metropolitan police have recently employed a tactic of using 'tactical contact' whereby officers use their police vehicles to knock criminals off from mopeds and motorbikes.

It has been announced that an officer may face criminal prosecution for one such event.

These criminals have been terrorising communities not just in London but across the country for too long. Mopeds and motorbikes are enabling criminals to commit violent crimes against unsuspecting innocent victims. For a long time these people have acted as though the police cannot touch them and that is why this approach from the police is so important. The professionals who have to make split second decisions and are well trained to use force which is proportionate and necessary need more protection in law.

If we don't protect the protectors who will keep us safe?
