Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme -DVDS (Clare’s Law) Sept. 2012

Greater Manchester Police is one of four forces who have been chosen to take part in a 12 month pilot of the Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (DVDS) or “Clare’s Law” as it is more commonly known.

The pilot began on 6  September 2012 and will give members of the public a formal mechanism to make enquires about an individual who they are in a relationship with, or who is in a  relationship with someone they know, where there is a concern that the  individual may be violent towards their partner.
