Lancashire Constabulary is offering more protection to victims of domestic abuse with the introduction of Domestic Violence Protection Orders.

Starting yesterday (Monday, July 28) , the court-issued orders along with Domestic Violence Protection Notices will allow officers in Lancashire to act fast to protect victims following an incident.

The new legislation is being introduced following a successful pilot scheme by a number of forces across the country.
