Superintendent Ian Brown, of the North East Area Command, attended the hearing to support the officers. He said: “This is a stark reminder of the kind of behaviour Met officers have to deal with on a daily basis.
“Police officers should be able to go about their jobs without fear of assault, but sadly this is not the reality.
“The body worn video was important evidence.
“It showed how quickly the situation escalated, and how the officers detained an aggressive suspect without endangering the public, whilst remaining calm and composed throughout.
“The court rightly acknowledged the bravery and the professionalism of the officers, with the Judge stating the seriousness with which assaults on officers are viewed.
“This is a fine example of how we are taking knives and offenders off the streets, and protecting the public.
“It also shows how our proactive operations directly result in convictions, and often jail sentences.”
