THE SECOND anniversary of Clare’s Law has seen 35 requests for information made in North Worcestershire to prevent domestic violence.
Since the scheme was introduced in March 2014, police have released ten disclosures to people in the area, including Redditch and Bromsgrove, who have requested information on their partners abusive pasts.
There have been 85 requests through out the entire county which police say may have provided several people with potentially life saving information.
Detective Superintendent Steve Eccleston said: “The Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme helps to protect victims, families and friends from devastating consequences while also enabling people to take informed action about their relationships and the opportunity to protect them.
“The scheme is an opportunity for you to take back control and make the right decision on whether you are at any risk by staying in that relationship.”
