To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether there are any plans to run a reducing bureaucracy pilot on domestic violence in Gwent or any other police areas.
The intention of the domestic abuse pilot is to improve police officer assessment of risk when attending domestic abuse incidents. The aim is for officers to exercise informed professional judgement in discharging their duties.
There are no plans at present to run a pilot in Gwent. The Metropolitan Police Service is likely to be involved in a future pilot.
