After an officer was spat on, a British citizen made 200 face shields to protect the police

Officers wear the face visors that were donated.

Paul Mosley, along with his team, used a 3D printer to make 200 face shields for Nottinghamshire Police. He said he decided to keep them at home after hearing about the incident involving Constable Police Anthony Brice, according to a pers conference issued by the Nottinghamshire Police.

Last month, a man detained by Brice spit in the eyes of the officer, which made officers fear he might be affected by the corona virus. He took the test, said a police official, who eventually returned negative.

“My family is worried, I’m worried,” Brice, a 16-year veteran in the police, words in a statement. “It was a very anxious and emotional experience.”

Brice, who did not want this to happen to other officers, worked with Mosely to coordinate donations.

Inspector David Wilkes thanked Mosley for “an extraordinary gesture.”

“There is a fantastic community spirit in and around Nottinghamshire at the moment and we are happy to accept donations,” Wilkes said in a statement.

Each shield requires around 60 to 90 minutes to make, according to a press release. Mosely told police that sometimes her 3D printer worked 24 hours a day to produce reusable face shields.

There were more than 60 incidents in which key workers, such as first responders and nurses, had coughed or spat while working during the pandemic, police said. “The mask was used to maintain the safety of officers and staff after a large number of incidents which caused key workers to cough or be spit upon since Coronavirus locking,” according to a press release.

“I hope this won’t happen to anyone else,” Brice said. “Nobody should be able to withstand this kind of behavior in the work they do.”
