An 18-year-old man has pleaded guilty to assaulting two volunteer police officers while being taken to custody following an incident in Arnold.
Davices Anderson, of Fairisle Close, Nottingham, appeared at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court on Friday (February 22), where he pleaded guilty to the assaults.
The Special Sergeants were both assaulted on Huntingdon Street as they conveyed Anderson to the Bridewell Custody Suite following an earlier incident in the Arnold area – which left one of the officers with bruising and swelling to the eye and chest area.
The incident occurred on Boxing Day 2018.
The 18-year-old received a 12 month Community Order, with a ten day Rehabilitation Activity Requirement, was ordered to pay each of the officers £100 in compensation and must carry out 100 hours of unpaid work.
A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: “Special Constables are volunteer, part-time officers, who hold the same powers in law, perform the same duties and face the same risks as their full-time counterparts.
“Nottinghamshire Police will do all that it can to ensure that its staff, officers and volunteers can go about their work without the fear of being assaulted in the execution of their duties and in such instances, will work to ensure offenders are brought to justice.”
