The Aylesbury Vale Neighbourhood Policing Team is working in conjunction with a number of key partner agencies to support a series of domestic abuse awareness events across the local policing area.

The next domestic abuse awareness event will be taking place next Friday 27th June at the Aylesbury Library, Walton Street, Aylesbury Vale. The event will run from 10am until 12pm.

These events aim to raise awareness of domestic abuse, which is often a crime that is considered hidden and we are determined to bring out into the open. We intend to highlight and inform members of the public about what is meant by domestic abuse, the impact domestic abuse can have on the victim, their family and friends and the community as a whole.

Officers will be giving advice on the role of the police in investigating domestic abuse offences, reporting domestic abuse and the judicial process involved. We will be signposting members of the public to relevant agencies, in seeking help if anyone finds themselves or another, in a domestic abusive relationship and information on number key partner agencies that provide support, to victims and their family and friends.

Specialist officers with experience of dealing with domestic abuse offences and investigations will be on hand to offer advice and support. A number of partner agencies will be attending these events offering their services, which includes representatives from Women's Aid, National Centre for Domestic Violence (NCDV), Terrence Higgins Trust, the local authority and various other agencies.

Insp Kelly Glister said: "At these domestic abuse awareness events we will be explaining how to report offences, what we do when a domestic abuse incident is reported to us, how we investigate such cases and what we do to protect victims of abuse and highlighting the work of partner agencies. The aim is to raise awareness of domestic abuse amongst the community and encourage more people living with domestic abuse to seek help.

"We are working closely with our partners to actively encourage more victims to come forward to receive the support they need, so we can bring offenders to justice and protect victims from abuse.

"I would encourage members of the public to attend this domestic abuse awareness day, meet your local policing team and speak to a number of support agencies. This is an ideal platform for anyone to ask questions, raise any concerns, receive advice and help in relation to domestic abuse."
