Help us root out abusers within policing's own ranks.
Refuge is calling on the Home Secretary to enforce mandatory suspension of all potential police abusers, until and only if, they're cleared following investigation.
Cases of abuse of women by police are all too often making headlines. Our research shockingly revealed that, of the total number of cases of officers accused of violence against women and girls (VAWG) between 2022 and 2023, only 24% were suspended while under investigation.
Sign now and tell the Home Secretary to implement a consistent suspension policy for police officers accused of violence against women and girls.

To: The Home Secretary
Please implement a consistent suspension policy across police forces in England and Wales, where all police officers and staff accused of violence against women and girls are suspended pending the outcome of an investigation.
