Police Community Support Officers play an important role in policing our communities. Any assaults on our police are completely unacceptable and they should have the most appropriate protection when facing the physical violence that is sometimes directed against them.

The Government’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory helps to develop and manage protective equipment standards, such as body armour, so that our police officers and staff are better protected.
