ACPO Honour Based Violence Strategy
Association of Chief Police Officer of England, Wales & Northern Ireland - Honour Based Violence Strategy
This is the first ACPO Honour Based Violence (HBV) Strategy. which has been written following extensive consultation with partners from across sectors and with survivors of forced marriage and other forms of honour-based violence sets out proposals for moving forward the response of the police to honour based violence and the development of a coordinated national police Honour Based Violence Strategy and two-year action plan.
The strategy sets out the next stage of work to be undertaken by police services across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The work relies on effective partnerships with statutory, voluntary and community sector organisations and with central government. The sharing of good practice and developmental work with colleagues in ACPO (Scotland) is also important to delivering a UK-wide approach. This strategy builds on the excellent work already undertaken by a number of police services to address HBV (in its various manifestations) and sets out an integrated strategic approach in light of the current policy and legislative context.
