Family violence disclosure scheme used
The scheme allows Police to disclose a partner or potential partner's history of violence. A request for the disclosure may be made to the Police by the partner of the potentially violent person, or a concerned third party.
Police are also able to proactively release family violence information if they believe someone is at risk from their partner. If Police believe someone is in immediate danger, they can take urgent action to protect them.
