Main article content
A total of 145 positive outcomes were made in North Wales for offences of violence against women and girls (VAWG) throughout July.
A positive outcome includes positive action taken following an arrest, including charges, summons, postal requisitions, cautions, taken into consideration (TICs), penalty notice for disorder (PND), drug warnings and community/restorative resolutions.
Overall last month, we made 71 charges, 49 alternative offence charges, three youth cautions, three adult cautions, one alternative offence adult caution, and 16 community resolutions.
Of all the positive outcomes, 65% (94 offences) were domestic related.
Nearly 40% (56) were offences of violence with injury and almost 23% (33) were of stalking and harassment.
Just over 10% were incidents of sexual violence.
VAWG Lead for North Wales Police, Chief Superintendent Jason Devonport, said: “We continue in our efforts to combat violence against women and girls and raise public trust to encourage victims to speak out against violence.
“We recognise there is still more to do, and we are working hard to ensure robust action will be taken against anyone who commits offences of violence towards women and girls in North Wales.
“Please be assured that any reports made to us will be treated seriously and with priority.”
A report will be published each month to highlight the work being done to tackle violence against women and girls in North Wales.
