star this property answer text <p>Violence against women and girls, including dowry abuse, is never acceptable and culture is no barrier to arrest and prosecution. The Forced Marriage Unit already collects data on forced marriage, which may include an element of dowry abuse. In 2013, the Unit provided advice or support in 1300 cases. While this does not reflect the full scale of the abuse (as many more cases are not reported), it enables the Unit to support those confident enough to come forward.</p><p>The Home Office is also committed to improving data collection on domestic abuse. Following HMIC’s report, the Home Office has begun work to make collection of data against a national standard on domestic abuse mandatory for all forces from April 2015. This activity will provide the police with a better platform for sharing information on domestic abuse.</p><p> </p> more like this

More broadly Police and Crime Commissioners are accountable to the public they serve and set out their priorities in their local police and crime plans. Many have made clear their commitment, through these plans and their other public work, to supporting vulnerable individuals, including those with mental health problems, learning, or other disabilities.</p><p>All police officers receive training on a range of mental health and related issues, including awareness of autism spectrum disorder.</p><p> </p> more like this
