Police refuse to work on domestic violence project Holland

The police are refusing to implement a new government initiative designed to combat domestic violence. From the New Year, officers will be expected to impose a house ban on men guilty of or threatening their partners with physical abuse. The men will be barred from contact with their partners and children for ten days and will face two years in prison if they ignore the order.

During the ten days, the men are supposed to work with social workers on the problems that have led to their violent behaviour. However, the police complain there is no system in place for the therapy as yet, and they refuse to co-operate with the project for the time being.
