star this property answer text <p>The Attorney General and Solicitor General meet the director of Public Prosecutions regularly to discuss CPS priority areas which includes ensuring that the CPS continues to protect vulnerable victims of crime. However, the Law Officers do not intervene on individual cases; judges have discretion to make decisions based on the evidence before them.</p><p>Section 12 of the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act 2004 enables courts to make restraining orders at the conclusion of a case. These are civil orders; however, breach of an order is a criminal offence. The Crown Prosecution Service takes domestic abuse seriously and in 2017 in England and Wales 19,216 restraining orders were issued on conviction and 1,932 were issued on acquittal. The Government sees the response to domestic abuse as a top priority and is committed to securing justice for all victims.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Protection from Harassment Act 1997 allows the court, upon conviction or acquittal, to make a restraining order for the purpose of protecting the victim from conduct that amounts to harassment or that will cause fear of violence.</p><p>The primary consideration of the court is that restraining orders remain necessary for the purpose of protecting the victim. When an application to vary a restraining order is made, the judiciary must consider the impact on the victim. Any application to vary must be shared with the victim to allow them to give their views before an order can be varied. All decisions on a variation are always communicated to the CPS, the police and the victim so that consideration can be made as to any additional protection that may be required. Departmental procedures require the police to receive notice within 30 minutes of an order being varied, so that they can take immediate steps if that is necessary.</p> more like this
