Attacks DOUBLE at Bracknell Council
Physical attacks have more than DOUBLED against Council staff in Bracknell.
Heart's got hold of figures through a freedom of information request at Bracknell Forest Council, which revealed:
- There were 32 reports of physical violence by staff reported between 1st April 2008 - 31st March 2009
- There were 81 reports of physical violence by staff reported between 1st April 2009 - 31st March 2010
But in an interview with Heart the Director of Corporate Services for Bracknell Forest Council told us more reports is actuall a good thing, 99 percent of those took place in two centres that cater for children with special needs and what meassures they're taking to manage behaviour and reduce attacks.
