Police in Antrim offering support to victims of domestic violence

The police force in County Antrim is offering support to male and female victims of domestic violence, reports the Antrim Times.

According to the paper, domestic violence officer for the Antrim Police Force Angela McBride is making herself available to those suffering from any sort of domestic abuse, be they male or female.

She is able to meet victims in their own homes or alternatively in any safe place for those who do not wish to come to the station.

Ms McBride also does not wear a police uniform.

Solicitors in Northern Ireland can offer advice to people suffering from domestic violence or considering divorce.

According to figures produced by the Home Office, some 77 per cent of domestic abuse victims are female, though this does mean that nearly a quarter of victims are male.

Domestic abuse can take many forms, from physical to emotional abuse.
