star this property answer text <p>We recognise that there are significant demands on the police from the changing nature of crime, with more victims of high harm crimes such as domestic abuse coming forward. The provisional 2019/20 police funding settlement announced on 13 December builds on this year’s total increase in police funding of £460m. The police workforce has remained stable over the past year and the number of people joining police forces has increased by 58% since 2015/16.</p><p>Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary, Fire and Rescue Service’s last inspection into domestic abuse found that police forces in England and Wales have a strong commitment to protecting victims of domestic abuse. Forces are continuing to invest in public protection and staff numbers have increased in many safeguarding units, with people being moved from other departments to provide more resilience.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The previous Government created a ground-breaking new offence of controlling or coercive behaviour in an intimate or family relationship, which came into force in December 2015, to recognise the patterns of manipulation and control that characterise domestic abuse. Since then we have seen 294 successful convictions and the number of prosecutions increased threefold in 2017. However, we recognise that there is further work to do to raise awareness, improve understanding of the offence and increase the number of prosecutions.</p><p>As part of the Government’s domestic abuse consultation last year, we asked whether further action should be taken to strengthen the offence.</p><p>In our response to the consultation we agreed that we will update the statutory guidance and Crown Prosecution Service legal guidance on the offence. We will also improve understanding of the offence throughout the justice system, and work to dispel stereotypes by promoting the updated statutory guidance for the offence through the courts and justice system. This will help to increase the number of cases that are brought, charged and successfully<br>prosecuted under this offence.</p><p>The Home Secretary chairs a national oversight group that is driving a culture change in the police response by ensuring that the recommendations from the Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire &amp; Rescue Services (HMICFRS) reviews into domestic abuse are acted upon. This includes improving police understanding of coercive control</p><p>Police training and guidance is the responsibility of the College of Policing and the College has produced a training programme, called ‘Domestic Abuse Matters’ developed by the charity SafeLives, which focuses on improved evidence gathering and understanding of controlling and coercive behaviour. We will invest in further police training on coercive control to extend the rollout of the Domestic Abuse Matters police change programme.</p><p> </p>
