Family matters


Share post:

While a call has been made for stronger community policing to help in the fight against domestic abuse, Attorney General Adriel Brathwaite does not believe the fight should rest entirely with the police.

Brathwaite pointed out that by the time police officers were made aware of instances of abuse, in most cases it had been going on for some time.

“We all accept that we need a holistic approach to this issue . . . but it is just not a police issue.

“Indeed, it is more an issue in terms of family, and how do we build families up and how do we address the issues of a man and woman relationship,” he said.

The Attorney General was delivering the feature address during yesterday’s closing ceremony of a Domestic Violence Instructors Development Course at the Courtyard Marriott.
