New report reveals poor police response to domestic violence

A new report by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) has found that police forces do not, in practice, prioritise cases of domestic abuse. It is considered a ‘poor relation’ to other areas of policing. Recommendations include: every police force publishing a detailed action plan of how they will tackle the problem; setting up a national oversight and monitoring group to report on the progress made towards implementing recommendations.
