Abstract

This report provides the first systematic investigation of action by public authorities in Britain to eliminate targeted violence. Based on a survey of 213 organisations, including police forces, councils and social landlords, it examines the extent to which existing policies, action plans, partnership work and training addressed targeted violence, and the level of action being taken to prevent, report and record such violence and to help victims and work with perpetrators. Key findings include that while most respondents worked in partnership, fewer had action plans. Equally, while most recognised that they had a role in helping people report, far fewer recognised a role in preventing incidents or working with perpetrators.
