Special DA service launched in Cleveland
Cleveland police in northeast England have set up a dedicated service to ensure it gives domestic abuse victims a high quality response.
Officers with relevant knowledge and experience will deal with domestic abuse calls. The team will research the incident and provide police officers attending with intelligence and a single point of contact to help and support them in dealing correctly with it, the police force said.
Temporary assistant chief constable Lisa Orchard said: “Our new Vulnerability Desk will increase arrests of perpetrators, and make sure victims receive timely, appropriate and effective support when they are most in need of it.”
