Domestic Violence Protection Orders
06 Nov 2014Ms Diane Abbott MP
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what funding is provided for police forces to enable them to serve domestic violence prevention orders; and if she will make a statement.
Lynne Featherstone MP Answered on: 11 November 2014
The costs of running Domestic Violence Protection Orders (DVPOs) are being met from local policing budgets. The DVPO model was extensively tested as part of a 15 month pilot in 2011-12. The pilot forces were able to operate DVPOs within established budgets during the last financial year.
