Now before knotting yourself forever into a relationship, you can get to know if your partner has any abusive or violent past. This scheme is now open in Greater Manchester.
In fact, the Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has joined forces in Gwent, Wiltshire and Nottingham also. Known as Clare’s law, this scheme is up to September 2013. Clare Wood of Salford was murdered in 2009 by her ex-boyfriend, George Appleton. They both met each other on Facebook and were in a relationship. The scheme has been launched after her name.
Earlier, she was unaware of George’s cruel nature but when came to know about it, it was pretty late. She complained the police several times before her death, but all in vain.
With the help of Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (DVDS) pilot, now anyone can inquire about his or her partner’s past nature. Its a formal mechanism that is accessible by all to know a violent or abusive past of someone else. As said by Assistant Chief Constable Steve Heywood, “This pilot is about prevention and exploring new ways of protecting victims of domestic abuse”.
By using this scheme, one can anytime quit from a relationship which he or she does not want to continue any more. And the scheme forces will definitely help and support the individuals making such a choice.
