Home Secretary Theresa May holds that the police must improve their handling of domestic violence cases, reports the BBC.
Noting the current discrepancies in the handling of domestic violence cases by the police, the Home Secretary has called for a number of improvements to be made to protect vulnerable individuals.
Approaching Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary, Theresa May has begun to discuss a new approach and improved training strategies for officers responding to domestic abuse cases. It is her opinion that higher standards ought to be sought after in order to reduce the risk to current victims. However, Mrs May will not be requesting a public inquiry into the issue because it would be too long a process.
