One-Third of Police Staff Aggressed

Almost one-third of police employees were either threatened or assaulted by civilians during work hours.  Outside of the workplace, this was the case for 14% of police employees.  These results are from research done among 3,000 employees by the Police Academy.  Another study showed that one out of five policemen who are involved in maintaining order and answering calls for emergency help are met with threats and violence after work hours.
