He said: “As we expected, the vast majority of people who went out over the weekend behaved responsibly and we’d like to thank them. “There’s no doubt it was a busy weekend for officers across the whole county but despite some isolated incidents people were generally well behaved at licensed premises. “I’d also like to thank owners and staff at pubs and bars. It has been a particularly tough few months for their businesses but most have worked exceptionally hard to ensure their premises were safe to welcome back customers. “Away from the pubs and bars, there were unfortunately a number of officers assaulted in drunker incidents over the weekend and we will be looking to deal with those responsible in a robust manner.”

Eight officers assaulted in drunken incidents over the weekend One of Warwickshire Police’s most senior police officers has spoken out after eight officers were allegedly assaulted when they responded to incidents over the weekend.* The alleged assaults occurred in five separate incidents on Saturday (4 July) and Sunday. While fortunately none of the officers were seriously injured, Chief Superintendent Ben Smith, head of local policing, has warned that they will take action where officers are assaulted. He said: “As police officers we accept we will be asked to put ourselves in harm’s way to protect the public. This doesn’t mean we expect to be targeted with violence and abuse. “Most have families who they say goodbye to before every shift not knowing what they are going to face over the coming hours. Like everyone else they have a right to work in a safe environment and should know they can return to their families safe and uninjured at the end of a shift.
“Where people think it is acceptable to be violent towards officers we will look to use the full force of the law to bring them to justice.”
