All 43 police forces have now published domestic abuse action plans, which have been reviewed by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary.

Following the publication of Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary’s report of the police response to domestic abuse in March 2014, the Home Secretary wrote to all chief constables making it clear that every police force must have an action plan in place to detail how they would improve their response to domestic abuse.
