image of Guidelines for Police Training on Violence Against Women and Child Abuse
Presents an overview of violence against women and child abuse. It covers eight specific issues:

• Gender, human rights and the law

• Police attitudes and sensitisation

• Crime prevention approaches to repeat victimisation

• Perspectives on offender profiling

• Evidence and investigation techniques

• Medical and forensic evidence and investigation procedures

• Liaison with non-police organisations

• Statistics, data collection and case management



The authors also introduce training modules on rape, other sexual offences, domestic violence, child abuse and protection as models of good practice from selected Commonwealth countries.



This book is a revision and update of the original edition which was published in 1989. The first two chapters are entirely new and have been added at the request of police officers.



The first edition was hailed by the UN Rapporteur as ‘a useful guide which is used in the Commonwealth and beyond.’

Gender, human rights and the law

The police have a crucial role to play in ensuring that polices on human rights adopted by the United Nations and agreed by member states are achieved. Regarding policies on women's human rights, a gender perspective is required for the police to be able to successfully undertake this socially necessary activity. While the violation of the human rights of women may take the same form as the violation of the human rights of men, they are often family based and require police action in new areas of work.
