The Police & Crime Commissioners work for YOU.
We have drafted an email that you can copy and paste and send to your Police & Crime Commissioner about the reality of domestic & sexual violence and the failures of police to deal appropriately with victims. The England & Wales PCC email addresses are listed below the email.
Please cross post onto your blogs - share the information as widely as possible. And keep us updated with any responses!
Dear (insert name of PCC)
Following the release of the Police Recorded Crime information regarding Domestic Violence, I have significant concerns about the response of both senior and junior police officers investigating these cases.
Please provide an update of your plan for dealing with the issue of Violence Against Women and Girls. We expect you to state clearly how your force is going to improve convictions rates for domestic and sexual violence, in order to improve the service for women and girls who report incidents perpetrated against them.
In addition to this, please provide details of how often officers are required to attend training in order to refresh their skills in dealing with these cases. If you require additional information regarding Domestic & Sexual Violence and Abuse training available in your area, these organisations will be able to help:
I would expect you to be able to provide clear and detailed information of what practical steps are to be taken by your force to improve the response for victim-survivors and to ensure that domestic and sexual violence is taken seriously at all levels within your organisation.
