Almost 2,300 gardai have been assaulted on duty over the past 10 years.
Justice Minister Helen McEntee says she condemns any attacks on gardai and other frontline services.
She said attacks on gardai not only injure the victims, but the communities as a whole, and continued to say any attack on the police force is an attack on the safety of all of us.
New figures show 2,267 gardai have been assaulted on active duty since 2013.
There were 205 in 2020, rising to 241 last year, with 196 so far this year.
Aontú leader Peadar Tóibín says people who assault Gardaí must be sent to prison.
“We in Aontú have created a new bill that would guarantee a custodial sentence - a minimum custodial sentence - for anybody who assaults a Garda, an ambulance worker or a fire service worker,” he told Today FM.
“These are servants of the people carrying out very dangerous work and we need to make sure that they can do that work without fear of being assaulted.”
The Minister says anyone who's convicted of assaulting a garda can be jailed for up to seven years, under current laws.
