Preventing crime forms a major part of Suffolk Constabulary’s work in the community.
Crime causes a great deal of misery to its victims. Suffolk Constabulary - often in partnership with other agencies - has launched a number of initiatives aimed at deterring offenders and cutting crime.
But there is one vital ingredient needed to make these initiatives a success - your participation.
Suffolk Constabulary is committed to tackling domestic violence by working in conjunction with various partners.
Domestic violence and abuse is a pattern of behaviour designed to establish and maintain power and control over another person.
Research suggests that if left unchallenged it is likely to escalate in frequency and severity, and can lead to murder.
If you are a victim of Domestic violence and abuse, or a friend or family member of someone who is - the message for you/them is:
. You are not alone
. You are not to blame
. You cannot change your abuser's behaviour
. Break the pattern - tell someone you trust; a friend, member of your family or GP
. Information and support is available for you and your family
