Domestic Violence Protection Orders (DVPOs), which can prevent the perpetrator from returning to a residence and from having contact with the victim for up to 28 days, were rolled out across England and Wales from March 2014.

Latest Ministry of Justice figures show that between April 2015 and March 2016, 3,951 DVPOs have been issued by Magistrates’ Courts. The Home Office does not hold data disaggregated to constituency or London borough level.
