New Sentencing For Assaults On Emergency Workers

When it comes to assaulting emergency workers there has, up to now, only been a specific charge for assaulting a police officer. This is a summary only offence which carries a maximum of 6 months imprisonment.

There is however an option to charge an offender with offences such as actual or grievous bodily harm if the injury to the officer is more serious.
