Domestic abuse within police force to be investigated

An official “super-complaint” is to be launched into the “boys’ club” culture within certain police forces that allows officers to abuse their spouses and partners without fear of arrest or prosecution.

The complaint, to be brought by the Centre For Women’s Justice, will describe myriad failings of forces when officers are reported for domestic violence against women they are in relationships with. Central to the complaint are at least 12 cases where women have made allegations of domestic abuse and sexual violence against an officer, only for the case to be dropped and, on occasion, for the alleged victim to be arrested and intimidated.
