Behind The Badge: BBC Series to highlight assault on West Mercia officer.
As part of the Police and Crime Commissioners Behind the Badge campaign , DPCC Tracey Onslow and West Mercia PC Lloyd Stone have taken part in a BBC Series to raise awareness of assaults against police officers and other emergency workers.
Critical Condition featuries staff from across the public sector, and will shine a light on the recovery and reintroduction of emergency workers assaulted and injured doing their job. Episode 4 of the 10 part series features DPCC Onslow and PC Lloyd Stone and will air on Thursday 13th June at 9.15am.
Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion said “I continue to campaign for people to see Behind the Badge to understand that police officers, staff and other emergency workers are human. Whilst the Assaults on Emergency Workers Bill was a landmark step in this campaign, there is always more we can do. I’m grateful to PC Lloyd Stone for his bravery in telling his story and to the BBC for highlighting, the impact that these assaults can have, not just on the person injured but on their loved ones and colleagues.”
