Domestic Homicide Review 2011
Domestic homicide reviews are carried out to
make sure lessons are learned when a person has been killed as a
result of domestic violence (domestic homicide).
In order for these lessons to be learned as widely and
thoroughly as possible, professionals need to understand fully what
happened in each homicide, and most importantly, to identify what
needs to change in order to reduce the risk of such tragedies
happening in the future.
As a result of a domestic homicide that occurred during 2011,
Bedford Borough Community Safety Partnership undertook a
Domestic Homicide Review to
identify the circumstances that led to the death. The
Executive Summary of the Domestic
Homicide Review identifies the key findings.
