Warwickshire Police has today publicly launched its strategy to tackle violence, abuse and intimidation against women and girls.
The development of the strategy started in the wake of the tragic murder of Sarah Everard in London and is launched on the same day the National Police Chief’s Council launches its framework for tackling violence, abuse and intimidation against women and girls.
It is intended to ensure tackling the problem and rebuilding confidence in policing is a top priority for the force.
The strategy includes five themes:
Detective Chief Superintendent Suzanne Baker said: “Recent incidents, most notably the murder of Sarah Everard, really highlighted the significant issue around women’s safety and damaged confidence in policing.
“It has however provided a watershed moment in society’s determination to tackle violence, abuse and intimidation against women and girls and, it is important that as a police force we grasp this opportunity to deliver lasting positive change.
“We have identified these five key areas that will help ensure we address the concerns of women and girls, and ultimately increase confidence in policing.
“Everyone should feel safe in their community and have confidence in the service provided by their police force. The launch of this strategy comes with a commitment that we will work tirelessly to deliver this and I urge our communities to hold us to account for delivering this.”
