Join the live debate on domestic abuse

28 November 2012

Domestic abuse is something we should be talking about.
 
To encourage people to think about the issue and to ask questions, a live debate on domestic abuse is being held on the Sussex Police website.
 
A panel of domestic abuse experts will be discussing some of the more challenging issues and answering questions, which can be submitted beforehand and during the debate live on Wednesday 5 December from 12 noon to 1pm.
 
This will be followed by an online chat, similar to instant messaging, to give people the opportunity to speak to the panel in more depth and to be able to speak directly to a survivor of domestic abuse.
 
Detective Sergeant Lloyd Lewis from the East Sussex Adult Protection Team, said: "Surprisingly some people still have little sympathy for victims of domestic abuse who stay in relationships, believing it is up them to leave or change the situation.
 
"In terms of crime, people are far more likely to raise concerns about robbery, burglary, criminal damage and anti-social behaviour but are reluctant to report domestic abuse.
 
"We are holding the live debate to get people talking about this issue. If people witnessed a crime or saw someone in need of help, they would report it and we want people to think about domestic abuse in the same way."
 
This is part of a number of events Sussex Police and partners are involved in to mark White Ribbon, the international day for the elimination of violence against women.
