Daily Echo-Project CARA reduces domestic abuse re-offending-18th June 2022

HAMPSHIRE police have been praised for reducing the reoffending rate of first-time domestic abusers by more than 40 per cent.

Project CARA – Cautioning and Relationship Abuse- was trialled by Hampshire Constabulary in 2013 and has since been adopted by nine police forces across the country.

Officers have received special dispensation from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to use conditional cautions for domestic abuse.

The project aims to enable first-time offenders to understand what domestic abuse is as well as the impact and consequences of their behaviour.

CARA has been made possible by the work of the Hampton Trust, which seeks to rebuild lives by addressing the root cause of domestic abuse.
