Police Attitudes and Sensitisation

The role of the police in strategies to confront crimes against women and children is crucial and central. Research from Canada, the United States and Britain has indicated, however, that the response of the police has not always been as satisfactory as it could be, crimes against women and children being treated with less seriousness than crimes against men or property unless the manifestations of those crimes were particularly serious. Thus, in general, the criminal justice system has been resorted to only unusually in crimes involving women and children that occur within the home, the police preferring to take on the role of conciliator or mediator in these circumstances.
