Festive crackdown on domestic violence

Police forces throughout Scotland have launched a two month initiative to help reduce the incidence of domestic violence across the country.

Chief Inspector Graham Goulden, who leads the Anti-Violence Campaign for the Violence Reduction Unit, said:

“Forces across Scotland have carried out some fantastic work over the past few years to tackle domestic abuse, and their commitment to continuing this work, as stated by the Chief Constable of Scotland, is strong.

“They have been supported in this by partners like Scottish Women’s Aid, Assist, White Ribbon Scotland and many others. Together, they have built a powerful united front against this most heinous of crimes, demonstrating clearly that domestic abuse will not be tolerated in 21st century Scotland and that those who commit it will be dealt with.

“But while police and partners can and will play their part, we must remember that domestic abuse is everyone’s problem. If we really want to make a difference to levels of domestic abuse, we need to look at our attitudes towards relationships and what we see as acceptable.”
