THE PSNI has relaunched its ‘One Punch Can Kill’ campaign in the run up to Christmas.
It has produced a short film in partnership with the Northern Ireland Policing Board and the Youth Justice Agency entitled ‘One Punch Can Kill’.
The film targets young males aged between 15 – 25 and highlights the risks of getting involved in an argument or fight which could ultimately lead to serious injury or death.
It will also be used as part of an educational package that will be rolled out across all policing districts in Northern Ireland.
Say the PSNI: “Our figures show that since 2004, 21 people have died as a result of One Punch attacks and many more have been seriously injured.
“With the launch of our new film we are encouraging young males to be mindful of their safety when they are out at night. Our message is to enjoy your night out, but please remember that One Punch Can Kill.
