Domestic Violence

Every 30 seconds the police receive a domestic violence related call.

In the year leading up to March 2016 it is estimated that domestic-abuse related crimes recorded by the police accounted for approximately 1 in 10 of all crimes.

Domestic violence is a huge issue for the police. Yet only around 20% of domestic violence crime is reported; and of that which is reported, less than 10% of domestic violence crime results in a conviction.
