We are asking licence holders and security businesses to familiarise themselves with the available guidance on responding to acid attacks. This is in response to recent acid attacks against members of the public, and a very small number of such attacks against licence holders.
An acid attack involves a corrosive substance being thrown or sprayed on a person or people as part of a violent attack or robbery. Although ‘acid attack’ is the phrase most people use to refer to such incidents, they can involve acidic, alkaline or caustic chemicals. Household cleaners, drain un-blockers and industrial chemicals might all be used by perpetrators.
