Since 2011, Community Safety Partnerships have been required to undertake domestic homicide reviews in circumstances where the death of a person occurs, or is thought to occur, as a result of violence, abuse or neglect from a family member or a member of the same household.
The purpose of a domestic homicide review is to establish what lessons are to be learned regarding the way in which local professionals and organisations work individually and together to safeguard victims and to prevent domestic homicide in the future. The aim of publishing reviews is to restore public confidence and improve transparency of the processes in place across all agencies to protect victims.
