Durham Commissioner backs Theresa May in her bid to improve domestic violence handling
The Home Secretary has said she will speak to Parliament soon about how police in England and Wales can improve the way they handle domestic violence.
Mr Hogg, Police and Crime Commissioner for Durham said;
‘One of my personal priorities is to reduce the impact of Domestic Abuse, particularly violence against women and girls and I am currently working with partner organisations in County Durham and Darlington to identify gaps in service delivery. My ultimate goal is to improve outcomes for the public and to increase confidence for individuals to report incidents, instead of suffering in silence
I fully support the Home Secretary and I would welcome a consistent approach across all police forces when responding to domestic violence incidents’.
