Clare’s Law

Clare’s Law is a police policy giving people the right to know if their current or ex-partner has any previous history or violence or abuse. Under Clare’s Law someone can • Apply for information about their current or ex-partner because they’re worried they may have a history of abuse and are a risk to them.

• Request information about the current or ex-partner of a friend or relative because they’re worried they might be at risk.

Clare’s Law enables the police to release information about any previous history of violence or abuse a person might have. To request information under Clare’s Law, someone can make a Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (DVDS) application. See https://clares-law.com for more information
