Specialist Domestic Violence Courts

Date:2 OCT 2006

The government plans to expand the number of courts specialising in domestic violence from 25 to more than 50 by April 2007. The existing courts have already had an impact on current prosecutions and convictions.

Specialist domestic violence courts use a combined approach, bringing together police, crown prosecutors, magistrates and the probation service, as well as working with victim support services. See November [2006] Fam Law for the full news article.
