The Pacific Judicial Development Programme (PJDP) delivered a Family Violence and Youth Justice Workshop in Niue for the judiciary, police and the community from 9 – 11 December, 2014.  The workshop was one of a series where PJDP and PPDVP have worked alongside each other to provide knowledge of issues, resources and responses to family violence.  PPDVP Programme Manager Cam Ronald acted as a facilitator,  with a  strong turnout of the Niue Police.  The Chief of Police, Tony Edwards, was present for all three days and various police staff were present throughout when they were available.

The workshop agreed on a Judicial Roadmap for the management of family violence cases in the Niue Courts which reflected the standard court processes and procedures, and laid these alongside a community based response and an alternative resolution process in appropriate cases.
