Cash for police officers to help abuse victims

Have your say

MORE than £100,000 will tackle domestic abuse.

Sussex Police and Crime Commissioner Katy Bourne has allocated the cash to extend the force’s use of dedicated Operation Ribbon domestic abuse patrol cars until the end of April.

It will pay for 200 specially-made smart phones with enhanced technology to support high-risk victims of domestic abuse.

Mrs Bourne said: ‘The extra patrol cars act as a deterrent with officers taking a proactive approach, visiting people known to be at risk of suffering domestic abuse.

‘I am pleased that the benefits of this operation will continue to be delivered with no break in service to victims.’
