The Tortoise Policing Inquiry, Friday 19th November, 10:00 – 15:45
Throughout 2021, the policing of violence against women and girls has come under renewed and widespread scrutiny. Why are police forces consistently failing to protect women and girls from sexual and violent crime? Are priorities being skewed? Does prevention work have low status compared to ‘after the event’ sleuthing to catch criminals? Is the policing of domestic abuse (which can lead to domestic homicide) viewed as too difficult and complex – effectively social work, rather than crime prevention? Do women and girls just count for less?
