Domestic homicide review: lessons learned

Paper includes common themes, such as risk assessment, information sharing and multi-agency working, and suggestions for what can be done locally.



Domestic homicide review reports received up to March 2013 have been analysed and some common themes identified. Although these themes are not new, this paper reinforces the work that is being done nationally, and can be done locally, to strengthen the response to domestic violence and abuse.

Police crime commissioners and community safety partnerships should be aware of these common themes and the lessons learned.
