Cheshire: Constabulary supporting Peace Day
September 21, 2012, 11:10 am
Cheshire Constabulary is backing todays international day of peace.
Peace Day aims to establish an annual day of ceasefire and non-violence, and although the campaign is focused on war zones, the principle extends to all forms of violence, including domestic violence.
The Constabulary is therefore supporting the ‘Reduce Domestic Violence Coalition.
Assistant Chief Constable Ruth Purdie is the force lead for domestic violence.
- Cheshire Constabulary will not tolerate domestic violence in any form and this is an excellent opportunity to unite around the issue.
- Through supporting the campaign, the Constabulary hopes to reduce levels of domestic violence andraise awareness about the subject.
- To help measure the impact of the campaign, we will be collating figures of the number of calls we receive that are related to domestic violence.
- This is an issue that the Constabulary feels very strongly about and we would encourage others to sign up and support the campaign too.
For advice and information on how to report domestic abuse, visit the domestic abuse page on our website.
