Community Safety and Policing Bulletin

The Government have confirmed the police and the probation service will start work immediately to ensure that offenders sentenced to a year or more for controlling and coercive behaviour are recorded on the violent and sex offender register. In addition, abusers could be fitted with a tag, prevented from going within a certain distance of a victim’s home, and made to attend a behaviour change programme, as part of a trial of domestic abuse protection notices and orders. Also, those at risk of, or suffering from, domestic abuse will be able to receive emergency help from 18 job centresacross the UK. Further details of the measures can be found in the article 'Domestic abusers face crackdown in raft of new measures'.
