Police Minister David Elliott says there is an overwhelming number of officers assaulted each week.

A recent spate of assaults have sent officers to hospital with severe injuries.

Minister Elliott told George Moore it has reached an unbearable level, with a large uptick in incidents in recent weeks.

“I made an effort when I became the minister 15 months ago to call every officer who’s injured in the line of duty and it was like one a week … now I’m averaging 50 a week.

“I just can’t keep up with it.”

Mr Elliott says people’s carelessness for consequences could be fuelling the violence.

“We should fear justice! That’s what keeps us obeying the law.”
