Hampshire police and military police join forces to fight domestic abuse

First published in News

A FORMAL agreement between Hampshire police and military police forces to work together to support victims of domestic abuse has been signed.

Key representatives from The Royal Navy Police, RAF Police, Royal Military Police, Ministry of Defence Police, and Hampshire Constabulary all signed the protocol document.

It sets out practical working arrangements to be followed when responding to domestic abuse incidents involving military families.

All the forces have been working together for several years and the protocol is thought to be the first in the country which establishes clear working procedures.

“The military community is no more or no less affected by domestic abuse but families can feel that they are facing additional barriers to accessing support.

“It is really important that we work together to support victims and identify perpetrators. This protocol helps us to do just that,” said Hampshire Constabulary’s Detective Chief Inspector Ben Snuggs.
