Inspectors undertake study visit for Domestic Violence and Abuse inspection

CJI Inspectors are undertaking a study visit today to Leeds to find out about the approach to addressing domestic violence and abuse in the area.  Inspectors will visit HALT, a charity who work with high risk victims of domestic abuse to reduce their risk of further harm and increase their safety and run the Leeds IDVA (Independent Domestic Violence Advocate) service.  Inspectors will also meet with representatives of Yorkshire and Humberside Crown Prosecution Service and West Yorkshire Police to find out about work they have been undertaking to undertake the conviction rates for domestic abuse offences.
