Police failing to attend one in nine domestic violence incidents, figures show | The Independent

Exclusive: Statistics paint ‘disturbing picture’ of growing crime levels and decreasing response

The number of domestic violence incidents going unattended by police is soaring, with the worst performing forces now missing a quarter of call-outs, damning statistics obtained by The Independent reveal.

The proportion of incidents where officers failed to show up more than doubled between 2012 and 2016 – from 5 per cent of cases to 11 per cent – responses to Freedom of Information requests from police forces across England showed.

Last year, at least 39,686 incidents went unattended, while it took police more than 24 hours to get to the scenes of a further 32,007 reported crimes.

An ever-smaller proportion of reports are attended within 15 minutes, the figures demonstrate. Police showed up to 47 per cent of cases in this time frame in 2012, but only to 37 per cent last year.
