West Midlands Police have domestic abuse officers who can help you with domestic abuse. They believe that domestic abuse is a serious crime.
Domestic abuse is any incident or pattern of incidents of controlling, coercive or threatening behaviour, violence or abuse between those aged 16 or over who have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of sexuality.
The priorities of the police service in responding to domestic abuse are:
- To protect the lives of both adults and children who are at risk as a result of domestic abuse
- To investigate all reports of domestic abuse
- To facilitate effective action against offenders so that they can be held accountable through the criminal justice system whilst ensuring that the victim and their children are safeguarded
- To adopt a proactive multi-agency approach in preventing and reducing domestic abuse
