We are calling for #HarpersLaw. The creation of this law - spearheaded by Lissie Harper, the widow of hero PC Andrew Harper - would mean anyone found guilty of killing a police officer, firefighter, nurse, doctor, prison officer or paramedic would be jailed for life.

When emergency services workers are killed on duty, then it hits right at the heart of our democracy.

We ask police officers, firefighters, nurses, doctors, prison officers and paramedics to go out there and keep the Queen’s peace on behalf of society. We ask them to save people’s lives. We ask them to protect us.

So society must offer the greatest protection for those dedicated public servants who are killed protecting it.

That is what Harper’s Law would provide. An appropriate deterrent and a suitable punishment.

The law must be changed.  We want to work with the Government, politicians of all parties and the fantastic British public on this.

We must protect the protectors. 

That is why we need Harper’s Law.
