Domestic Violence or Family Violence? A discussion

The Programme Design for the PPDVP considered the wider definition of family violence and determined that the best initial approach was for a pacific police programme addressing Domestic Violence – where the special relationship between the spouse existed.

Recent trends in the various countries where PPDVP is active is for a wider role for the original domestic violence units towards family violence, including the range of offences and activities within the overall family.

A briefing paper for the Programme Implementation Team of the PPDVP was developed in September and is posted for reference.  Questions such as this one will be amongst those considered in the End of Programme Evaluation in 2011.
