Prevent emergency workers who are victims of crime being named by the press

Petition Details

When an emergency worker is assaulted, their full name is often reported in the press & therefore made public. For the protection and safety of emergency workers this should be prevented. ‘Officer A’ or similar should be used, to protect the identity of the worker.

Additional Information

The safety of victims of crime should be the priority, and is especially relevant to emergency workers. They serve to protect the public but are not protected themselves from the public. If an emergency worker is a victim to a crime their name should not be exposed.
