Domestic Homicide Reviews
A public consultation has been launched by the Department of Justice (DOJ) Community Safety Division seeking views on a proposed model for the introduction of Domestic Homicide Reviews in Northern Ireland. This is intended to seek opportunities for learning from the tragic circumstances where an adult (aged 16+) has been killed as a result of domestic violence and abuse.
The consultation document and response questionnaire are available at:
Responses should be sent to:
Written: Community Safety Division, Room A4.03, Castle Buildings, Stormont (hard copy) Estate, Belfast, BT4 3SG
