‘Clare’s Law’ requests top 20,000 in Scotland

Police Scotland has received 20,005 applications under the Disclosure Scheme for Domestic Abuse in Scotland (DSDAS) since the nation launched its version of Clare’s Law eight years ago.

The requests resulted in 11,599 disclosures (58%) telling people their current partner has a violent or abusive past.

“They can then choose the course of action they wish to take, whether to end the relationship or continue it,” said domestic abuse head detective superintendent Gillian Faulds.
