Date agreed: 01 August 2019

Action

Priority August – September 2019

Op Heirloom

Domestic Abuse awareness

In Dyfed-Powys police we have identified that our reports of domestic abuse are higher during the summer than any other time of year. Visitor numbers throughout summer month’s increase within Dyfed-Powys and this will inevitability impact upon us.

In response to this throughout August and September we will be running a force wide operation, Op Heirloom. Some of the aims of the operation are to:

  • Safeguard the community and protect those most vulnerable.
  • Hold perpetrators accountable at every opportunity.
  • Protect Victims & Children from serious harm

Neighbourhood policing teams will raise awareness of the subject within our communities.

We will support this making it a priority for the period. Our Neighbourhood policing team will be visiting campsites, tourist attractions and the night-time economy, to talk to people about domestic abuse.

As well as talking to people about domestic abuse we have specially trained domestic abuse officers and staff working in the background targeting known offenders and protecting vulnerable people using all the powers available to them.

This includes disclosures through a scheme called Clare’s Law. It allows victims or potential victims of domestic abuse to be made aware of a partner’s violent past.

SIGNS OF DOMESTIC ABUSE

  • Domestic abuse is not only violence. It can be physical, sexual, emotional or financial abuse, threats and causing damage to property. These are all ways of controlling someone

 

  • One partner seems afraid of the other, or very anxious to please him or her

 

  • One partner often criticises or humiliates the other in front of other people

 

  • You can see physical injuries (bruises, broken bones, sprains, cuts etc) and may have been given unlikely explanation for their injuries

 

  • One partner is reluctant to leave children with the other partner.

 

ADVICE FOR PEOPLE WHO WITNESS DOMESTIC ABUSE

  • To report domestic abuse call police on 101. If you’re reporting to police as abuse is happening call 999 for an immediate response.

 

  • Don’t be afraid to report anything that concerns you. It’s not interfering and could really help someone at risk of domestic abuse

 

  • Your phone call or support could make a real difference.
