The research is a collaborative project between Essex Police and the University of Essex; funded jointly by the Economic and Social Research Council and Essex Police. The key purpose of the research is to review the policing of DV in Essex to identify how police understandings of DV impacts on their response to the problem and the levels of protection offered to victims. The research design focuses on highlighting the voice of the victim, adding to current efforts to improve police performance and align more closely ‘what police do’ with ‘what victims need’ to provide a better service and prevent further harms.
