• Domestic Violence Monitoring And Accountability Is Vital To Save Lives | Tina Royles

    As a former Police Officer I was interested to read that Essex Police are currently under the spotlight due to a number of significant failings in their handling of domestic violence cases in particular with 3 recent murder cases.  However these failings are not just isolated to Essex Police they are happening in every force. Monitoring and Accountability is the key!

    HM Inspector of Constabulary (HMIC) has released its report following a number of domestic violence-related killings

    The first incident of domestic violence is often difficult to stop, however repeat incidents are where all agencies need to improve.  It is here that they should and must pull together and put measures in place to assist victims. The police cannot work in isolation to combat domestic violence and we must look at the DASH Risk Assessment Model (Domestic Abuse, Stalking and Honour Based Violence (DASH 2009) Risk Identification, Assessment and Management Model) and to the role of the MARAC  (Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conferences) to ascertain whether these are actually working effectively and whether they are assisting victims and putting appropriate safety measures in place. Again monitoring and accountability is the key not just for the police but for all agencies involved!

    If you are suffering from domestic violence or know someone who is then please contact me on 01244 760 113 or arrange a call back

    All enquiries are treated with the upmost confidentiality.
