Police are to be given more training to protect victims of domestic abuse from controlling and coercive behaviour as this is going undetected due to lack of police understanding. Under a new pilot scheme officers will be trained to look for patterns of behaviour that could lead to long term psychological injury. Officers tend to focus too much on physical violence and fail to spot the signs. After a Freedom of Information request, it revealed that the new law was used just 62 times in the first 6 months.
