The equivalent of almost one day a week of police time is being spent on domestic violence related cases according to figures shared with me by Police and Crime Commissioner, Jason Ablewhite. This should act as a wake-up call across our community so that we do more to tackle this issue.
East Cambridgeshire District Council deserves credit for its recent work on the White Ribbon Campaign and I have written to Fenland District Council asking that they also step-up and join this important initiative.
If you are effected by domestic violence or know anyone who is then please do speak up. Organisations such as 24-hour National Domestic Violence Helpline can be contacted on 0808 2000 247.
