Episode 256 - Profiling Serial and Serious Domestic Violence Perpetrators and Stalkers

Laura talks with Jim and Lisa about her campaign to place a statutory duty on the responsible public protection authorities - police, prison and probation services - to ensure serial and serious domestic violence perpetrators and stalkers are proactively identified, assessed and managed on a national basis.  As a group of senior cross party MPs and select committee chairs tabled an amendment to the Domestic Abuse Bill, Laura highlights harrowing and haunting cases across her 25 year career demonstrating how women are being spectacularly failed every single day and that we can’t afford to ignore the patterns of behaviour any longer. Please be an upstander, listen to the episode and take action. Together we can raise our voices and create real change to better protect women and their children.
