• New City of London Police campaign launches to highlight the need for awareness around domestic abuse, especially within workplaces
  • A booklet is being sent to businesses in the City of London to help managers with #spottingthesigns and to signpost guidance for city workers
  • Watch our video to see how spotting the signs of abuse affecting those around you can make a difference

The City of London Police is today (Monday 13 August) launching a booklet for City businesses and workplaces that will help them spot the signs of domestic abuse amongst their staff and help give employees confidence to report anything affecting them they may not be comfortable reporting to their local force.

The booklets have been sent to businesses as part of a digital toolkit which will assist them in creating their own polices to identify domestic abuse or related issues within their workforce and educating them in how to help employees who may be suffering abuse.

Businesses can also show interest in having a member of the City of London Police Public Protection Unit (PPU) contact them about the booklet or about training within their company on our dedicated webpage.

Within the City, we may have a small residential population, but this number swells during the day due to the large workforce community. We recognise that workplaces may provide a safe place to report domestic abuse or to talk about issues away from home. As a police service the City of London Police are available to assist City workers, as well as residents with any matters they wish to report or to offer support.

Detective Inspector Anna Rice
