Domestic Homicide Review BDHR 2012/13 04
Since 2011, Community Safety Partnerships have been legally required to carry out domestic homicide reviews (DHRs) in the situation where the death of a person occurs, or is thought to occur as a result of violence, abuse or neglect by a family member or a member of the same household.
Domestic Homicide Reviews are carried out to try and establish what lessons can be learnt from how organisations worked individually and together, to prevent domestic homicides in the future. The reviews are made public to restore confidence and to show transparency of the processes in place to protect victims.
