Developing a consistent response: the identification and management of serial perpetrators of domestic abuse in England and Wales
Jackson, Zoë (2016) Developing a consistent response: the identification and management of serial perpetrators of domestic abuse in England and Wales. BSc dissertation, University of Portsmouth.
Serial perpetrators of domestic abuse are defined as those who have used or threatened violence or abuse against two or more victims who are unconnected to each other. In 2009, the Association of Chief Police Offices [ACPO] estimated that there may be as many as 25,000 serial domestic abuse perpetrators in contact with police at any one time in the UK, and recommended that specific measures for the identification and management of these individuals be introduced as a priority. Seven years on, there is still no consistent framework that provides for the tracking, monitoring and/or management of this cohort of high-risk, prolific offenders.
