Increased family violence reporting not all bad

Women’s Health Victoria welcomes the release of Victoria Police’s Crime Statistics. While it may appear concerning that reports of family violence to police have increased by 23% in the past year, it is a good sign that those experiencing violence are coming forward. This means that there is more community confidence to report these matters to police and that police are taking these matters seriously.
