Ahead of England’s next game against Belgium tomorrow evening, Humberside police continue to send the message that there is NEVER excuse for domestic abuse.
The police have dealt with 428 domestic violence related incidents during the first 10 days of the 2018 World Cup*, an increase of 6% on the 10 days before the tournament kicked off.
According to national research, domestic abuse rates across the country can rise by as much as 28% when England win a football match.
The World Cup, as with other major sporting events, is often associated with an increase in incidents of domestic abuse because of factors such as increased alcohol consumption and an increase in tension.
The police are continuing to raise awareness of the support available
Detective Chief Superintendent Lisa Atkinson said:
“We are acutely aware that behind each incident is a victim and an offender. We have a team of dedicated domestic abuse specialists who understand how difficult it is for a victim of domestic abuse to come forward and the sensitivities required. We work closely with partner agencies to ensure the right support is in place at the right time and to work with the victim to break the cycle of abuse and through any criminal justice process.”
“There are also programmes and support available for offenders to take positive action to address their behaviour and we would encourage anyone who needs this help to seek support before it gets out of control and damages their life and the lives of those around them.
“For those who refuse to address their behaviour our message is clear; we will not tolerate domestic abuse and will take action against anyone who uses physical or psychological abuse to control, coerce or harm a member of their family. Football can never be the reason for domestic abuse and will be shown the red card.”
