WRC participated in 5 Conference Cases of family violence in 2016. They discussed about the cases of family violence where WRC noticed irregularities in police actions.
Police officers were called upon to address to victims’ statements with full confidence, to do risk assessments, to react urgently and to have more proactive approach when contacting competent authorities and institutions. We recommended to strengthen the communication with Center for social work and especially to focus the attention of police officers towards persons with history in violence. Conclusions and recommendations the Council adopted on the basis of numerous complaints and initiatives of the NGO Women’s Rights Center.
