ACPO response to the launch of the Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (Clare's Law)

A pilot scheme that gives potential victims of domestic violence the right to know information to protect themselves and their families


ACPO lead on domestic abuse Chief Constable Carmel Napier said:


"A key part of policing is to protect people from harm. The Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme is intended to empower people to make informed decisions to protect themselves and their children when getting involved with a new partner. It will also allow the police to act in the best interests of people they believe could be at risk of violence by sharing information of a partners’ violent past.”
