Call for evidence – policing of domestic violence offenders

January 21, 2014 at 1:05 pm
As part of the N8 collaboration of leading universities in the North of England, we have been funded by the College of Policing to undertake a rapid review of evidence on policing of domestic violence offenders (particularly partner/ex-partner violence and abuse).We are keen to include as wide a range of interventions as possible.  Whilst the study is limited to material in the English language, it seeks to include examples from across the world.

We would be extremely grateful if you could alert us to any evidence, particularly if it is unpublished material / documents (i.e. grey literature) on this topic. Ideally, if you could attach the documents that would be excellent, otherwise if you could provide a full reference and its source that would be very helpful.

We are under tight time constraints so any feedback or information you are able to give us before the end of February 2014 would be much appreciated.
