Academics at The Open University are working in partnership with the University of South Wales to hold a networking event aimed at understanding how police forces in Wales are addressing domestic abuse within their organisations.
The event is being funded by the All Wales Police Academic Partnership and has three key objectives:
The event will provide an opportunity for the Welsh forces to network with each other and learn about the different approaches they are taking. It will also consider the unique context in Wales where police forces have to adhere to Home Office rules but are also subject to devolved legislation. Following the event, a research plan will be developed so that the different approaches in Wales can be evaluated to understand how they are working in practice.
