UK: Police assessment places violence against women and girls on same footing as terrorism

Article here. Excerpt:

'Police chiefs have issued the first official assessment of violence against women and girls in the UK, placing such offences on the same footing as terrorism and serious organised crime.

The 230-page intelligence document outlining the crimes that pose the greatest threats to women and girls has been shared with all forces by the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC).

The NPCC said it hoped the assessment would help forces better understand “the influences and levers” that contribute to the crimes.'
