To ask Her Majesty's Government what procedures police forces in England and Wales use in assessing risk in domestic abuse, stalking and harassment and honour based violence cases.
To ask Her Majesty's Government whether there is any evidence from domestic homicide reviews undertaken since 2001 that the training of police officers in England and Wales on risk identification, assessment and management is adequate.
Evidence from domestic homicide reviews has informed the development of risk assessment tools and police training-including the development of the domestic abuse, stalking and honour based violence (DASH) risk identification, assessment and management model accredited for use throughout the UK.
The Home Office is establishing an expert group which will have responsibility for quality assuring the reports and cascading lessons learnt nationally. Our overall aim is to identify the lessons that can be learnt from domestic homicides with a view to preventing future homicides and violence.
To date no reviews have completed under the statutory guidance.
