No one should live with the constant threat or fear that they might be assaulted while at work. Yet those who work in the justice, custodial and immigration sector are all too often faced with that reality. 1 in 4 justice, custodial and immigration sector workers tell us they have been assaulted at work at least once in the last year alone. Read the full report.
These are a group of workers that go above and beyond to keep the public safe. Despite this, assaults have been allowed to continue to rise and the problem is getting worse. Since 2010, assaults on prison staff have increased by a staggering 247%.
We’re campaigning to stamp out assault in the justice sector, and we need your help.
