Investigations. ‘Any incident of threatening behavior, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults, aged 18 and over, who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender and sexuality.’ Investigations. (Family members are defined as mother, father, son, daughter, brother, sister and grandparents, whether directly related, in-laws or step-family.). Investigations

Investigations. When a person suspects a cheating partner (married or not, heterosexual or gay) this can eat away at that person. Investigations. Sometimes a person will try and avoid the “tell tell” signs of a cheating partner and try and deny it is happening. But how long can you live like this and is it fair for you? Investigations

Investigations. Confused-marital. Investigations

Investigations. The priorities of the Police investigations in responding to domestic abuse are as follows:

  • Investigations to protect the lives of both adults and children who are at risk as a result of domestic abuse; Investigations
  • Investigations. To investigate all reports of domestic abuse; Investigations
  • Investigations to facilitate effective action against offenders so that they can be held accountable through the criminal justice system; Investigations
  • Investigations to adopt a proactive multi-agency approach in preventing and reducing domestic abuse. Investigations.

Investigations. The legal obligations, which underpin the above priorities, include the duties within the Human Rights Act 1998 and the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) to protect life and to protect individuals from inhuman and degrading treatment. Investigations.

Investigations. Both the Convention and other legislation place a clear responsibility on public authorities to fulfill these obligations without discriminating on any grounds. Investigations. All victims of domestic abuse should receive the appropriate quality of investigations according to their individual needs.

Investigations. All allegations should be properly investigated and offenders held accountable through the criminal justice system, without discrimination. Investigations.

Investigations. Chief Officers should establish and implement policies which ensure that the police Investigations response to domestic abuse fully supports and achieves these priorities. Police staff should maintain and enhance public confidence by delivering these priorities to a high professional standard on the Investigations. Investigations.

Investigations. In achieving these priorities and fulfilling these obligations, partnership working with criminal justice agencies and other statutory and voluntary sector investigations is essential. Investigations.

Investigations. A common feature in most domestic abuse investigations is repeated victimization. Investigations. This is usually defined as more than one incident reported to the police in a given period, for example, twelve months. Investigations. Positive action policies should be applied in all investigations of domestic abuse to reduce repeat victimization and protect victims. Investigations. First-hand reporting from a victim or witness is the most common way that the police are informed about domestic abuse. Investigations. The majority of domestic abuse incidents are reported via calls to the police, visits to the police station or through contact with operational officers. Investigations. All reports of domestic abuse should be recorded in compliance with ACPO (2002) National Crime Recording Standards. Investigations.

Investigations. The receipt of a report of domestic abuse is the beginning of the investigations. Officers and police staff should establish as much detail as possible to ensure effective investigations. Investigations. A victim or witness making a report of domestic abuse might not identify it as such. Therefore, officers and, to some extent, police staff, need to ask relevant questions to identify reports clearly as domestic abuse. Investigations.

Investigations. POTENTIAL ASSOCIATED INVESTIGATIONS. Domestic investigations.

Investigations. The links between investigations into another offense and associated offenses of domestic abuse might not always be apparent. Investigations. These potentially linked inquiries should identify domestic abuse as a line of inquiry, particularly when investigating the following types of offending. Investigations.

CHILD ABUSE INVESTIGATIONS. Domestic investigations

Investigations. ‘Child abuse’ is a generic term encompassing all circumstances of ill-treatment of children.

Investigations. It includes serious physical and sexual assaults as well as investigations where the standard of care does not reach reasonable expectations. HM Government (2006) Working Together to Safeguard Children: A guide to inter-agency working to safeguard and promote the welfare of children sets out definitions of child abuse and gives examples of the four broad categories of child abuse:

  • Investigations. Physical abuse; Investigations
  • Investigations. Sexual abuse; Investigations
  • Investigations. Emotional abuse; Investigations
  • Investigations. Neglect. Investigations

Investigations. There are significant links between domestic abuse and child abuse. In households where domestic abuse takes place, children might also be subject to abuse. Investigations. Similarly, in households where there is child abuse, domestic abuse may be present. Investigations. Children witnessing domestic abuse are exposed to harm and risk. Investigations. An amendment to the Children Act 1989, made in section 120 of the Adoption and Children Act 2002, clarifies the meaning of ‘harm’ in the Children Act 1989 to make it explicit that harm includes, for example, the impairment suffered from seeing or hearing the ill-treatment of another. Investigations.

Investigations. In child abuse investigations the welfare of the child is paramount; failing to identify and fully investigate the domestic abuse element of any child abuse could result in failure to protect the safety and well-being of both child and adult victims. Investigations.

Investigations. Officers should be vigilant to indicators of domestic abuse that may come to the attention of the police through child abuse investigations. Investigations. When investigating domestic abuse investigations, officers should be alert to potential concerns relating to children, including abuse or neglect of the children in the family, or physical or emotional abuse suffered by a child in a household where domestic abuse is perpetrated. Investigations.

Investigations. First response officers should be supplied with, and have ready access to, current information regarding prior domestic abuse and child abuse offending. Investigations. This should include details of any relevant civil orders. Investigations.

Investigations. HARASSMENT. Domestic investigations

Domestic abuse investigations may include harassment-type offenses and vice versa.

Investigations. Harassment can be a direct part of the domestic abuse or can occur due to the actions of people associated with the abuser. Investigations.

Investigations. In some investigations of harassment which relate to domestic abuse, the offender will not be readily obvious because the offenses are committed anonymously. Investigations.

Investigations. HOMICIDES. Domestic investigations

Investigations. Domestic homicides represent a high proportion of homicides in England and Wales. Investigations. On average, approximately one-third of all homicides are committed by a family member, partner or ex-partner. Investigations.

Investigations. When investigating a domestic homicide, officers should use intelligence sources and specialist staff who carry out domestic abuse investigations and coordination roles. Investigations. In order to build a strong prosecution case, and to anticipate defense strategies, investigations should also seek information from relevant partner agencies to establish whether there has been previously recorded domestic abuse. Investigations.

Investigations. In domestic homicide investigations, other considerations which might impact on the investigations include the possibility of child abuse, sexual offenses, the danger posed to previous and potential future victims of domestic abuse and existing and future child contact arrangements and agreements. Investigations.

Investigations. HONOR-BASED VIOLENCE. Domestic investigations

Investigations. The term ‘honor-based violence’ (HBV) has been the subject of much debate. Investigations. Although it is used here, it is recognized that there is no honor and no legal defense for committing offenses against the person, and abuses of human rights. Investigations. This term is used in this document because it is the internationally recognized term describing cultural justifications for violence and abuse. Investigations.

Investigations. HBV can be described as a collection of practices (some criminal and some not) which are used to control behavior within families to protect perceived cultural and religious beliefs and/or honor. Investigations. Abuse may occur when perpetrators perceive that a relative has shamed the family and/or community by breaking a perceived honor code. Investigations. HBV can be distinguished from other forms of violence as it is often committed with some degree of approval and/or collusion from family and/or community members. Investigations. Examples of HBV may include controlling sexual activity, domestic abuse, child abuse, rape, kidnapping, false imprisonment, female genital mutilation (FGM), threats to kill and fear of or actually forced marriage, or homicide. Investigations.

Investigations. Forced marriage investigations is a marriage conducted without the full and free consent of both parties. Investigations. It should not be confused with an arranged marriage, which has the consent of both parties. Investigations. In forced marriages, family members or spouses may perpetrate abuse, either by forcing the victim into the marriage or by continuing the abuse after the marriage. Investigations. The abuse may be committed by any family member (male or female) and may or may not include the other party to the forced marriage. Investigations.

Investigations. The marriage can occur in this country or abroad. Investigations. The Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007 allows the High Court or county courts to protect a person from being forced into a marriage, or from any attempt to force a person into marriage or to protect a person who has been forced into a marriage. Investigations. Orders can have a power of arrest attached to them. Investigations. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Home Office Forced Marriage Unit develop government policy on forced marriage, coordinate outreach projects and provide support and information to those at risk. Investigations. Investigations.


Investigations. Officers should note that in many investigations, insecure immigration status might act as a further barrier to reporting. Investigations.

Investigations. The following immigration rules apply to domestic violence. Investigations.

General rules Investigations

Investigations. Provided that requirements for obtaining entry clearance have been met, people entering the UK as the husband or wife or civil partner of a person who is present and settled in the UK should be granted leave to remain for an initial period of two years. Investigations. This period is sometimes referred to as the probationary period. In the case of an unmarried partner or same-sex partner of a person who is present and settled in the UK, the probationary period is also two years. Investigations.

Investigations. If one of the above pieces of evidence is not available, at least two of the following are acceptable:

  • Investigations. Medical report from a hospital doctor confirming that the applicant has injuries consistent with being the victim of domestic violence; Investigations
  • Investigations. Letter from a general practitioner who has examined the applicant and is satisfied they have injuries consistent with being the victim of domestic violence; Investigations
  • Investigations. Undertaking gave to a court that the perpetrator of the abuse will not approach the applicant, who is the victim of abuse; Investigations
  • Investigations. Police report confirming attendance at the home of the applicant as a result of domestic violence; Investigations
  • Investigations. Letter from adult investigations or children’s social care confirming its involvement in connection with domestic violence; Investigations
  • Investigations. Letter of support or report from a women’s refuge. Investigations


Investigations. There is a potential link between missing persons and domestic abuse. Investigations. The person reporting an individual as missing may not know, or might not disclose, domestic abuse to the police. Investigations. Identifying that the missing person is a victim of domestic abuse or child abuse, or is an offender, will have an important bearing on determining the type and level of investigations undertaken. Investigations. The missing person could be the victim of a domestic homicide.

Investigations. It is also possible that by reporting a person as missing, an abuser could be attempting to locate a victim who has escaped from a violent situation. Investigations.

Investigations. Domestic abuse officers should be informed when a domestic abuse victim or suspect/offender is missing. Investigations. Previous domestic abuse records and intelligence should be used to assist in the investigations. Established links with domestic abuse investigations providers, such as local refuges and outreach investigations, should be used, where appropriate, to explore whether they can assist with the investigations. Investigations. Such contact should respect the confidentiality process of the investigations provider, and should not presume that information will be made available. Investigations.

A missing person who is an alleged domestic abuse victim Investigations.

Investigations. When investigating missing person reports in which the victim is, or may be, a victim of domestic abuse, officers should:

  • Investigations. Maintain victim confidentiality, as far as possible, with the victim’s safety and protection being the priority at all times. Investigations. If a person is traced, officers should only confirm whether or not they are safe and well. Officers should seek the full consent of the traced person before disclosing any additional information to the person reporting them as missing, or to any other person. Investigations
  • Investigations. Consider that a child may have run away from home to escape domestic abuse, HBV or other forms of abuse that are occurring in the home. Investigations. The immediate family may not reveal this information and, therefore, it is crucial that any previous history (from any available source) is considered. In investigations where there is a suspected abduction for the purposes of forced marriage, see 1.2.5 Honor-Based Violence. Investigations
  • Investigations. Consider that abusers may report children as missing or as abducted when their partner has left for their own safety and has also removed the children to a place of safety. Investigations
  • Investigations. Consider that part of an abuser’s strategy may be:

– Investigations. to report the victim missing and possibly to portray false concern in an attempt to cover up the abuse or homicide; Investigations

– a failure or reluctance to report the victim missing to avoid the subsequent investigation; Investigations

– Investigations. to seek police assistance, believing the police will disclose the whereabouts of the victim or return them to the abuser. Investigations

  • Investigations. Use the expertise of domestic abuse officers, who will have useful contacts with refuge and domestic abuse outreach investigations.
  • Investigations. Ensure that the locations of refuges and domestic abuse outreach investigations are never revealed to family members attempting to trace a missing person. Investigations.

Investigations. PROSTITUTION Investigations

Investigations. Abusers or family members can force victims into prostitution. No matter how the situation is presented, it is essential that the links between domestic abuse and prostitution are clearly identified and acted upon. Investigations. Failure to recognize domestic abuse could have dangerous implications for the victim and any children. Being forced into prostitution increases the vulnerability of the victim to further harm or homicide. Investigations. Police operations addressing prostitution should identify potential links between prostitution and domestic abuse during the tasking and coordination process. Investigations.

Investigations. SEXUAL OFFENCES Investigations. Investigations.

Investigations. The potential for domestic abuse investigations to include sexual abuse needs to be integral to the earliest stages of investigations. Investigations. Sexual abuse is often part of domestic abuse but is rarely disclosed, particularly when other forms of abuse are the primary reasons for police involvement. Investigations. Most victims of sexual abuse find it difficult to disclose details of this, even at crisis point. Investigations.

Investigations. Information from partner agencies, particularly voluntary sector support investigations, may indicate the presence of sexual abuse and this should be identified and acted upon as appropriate. Investigations.

Investigations. The skills and expertise of domestic abuse officers and specially trained officers (STOs), who are trained to investigate sexual offenses, should be used to ensure that domestic abuse victims are provided with the opportunity to disclose sexual abuse and given access to relevant support investigations. Investigations. Victims should be informed of local investigations such as sexual assault referral centers (SARCs), or their equivalents, and of the possible benefits of undergoing a forensic medical examination. Investigations.


Investigations that take place as part of the management of sexual offenders and violent offenders can relate to domestic abuse. Investigations. MAPPA offenders and Potentially Dangerous.

Investigations. Persons (PDPs) can have an offending background which includes domestic abuse. Investigations. Such abuse can also be uncovered during the management of offenders who have no record of such offending behavior. Investigations.

Investigations. VULNERABLE ADULT ABUSE. Investigations

No Secrets defines a vulnerable adult as a person who is or may be in need of community care investigations by reason of mental or other disability, age or illness: and who may or may not be able to take care of him or herself, or unable to protect him or herself against significant harm or exploitation. Investigations.

Investigations. Older people and adults with a physical or learning disability, or who have mental health problems, are particularly vulnerable to suffering domestic abuse perpetrated by their partners, ex-partners and family members.
