Domestic abuse unit is to expand

Police in Guernsey are stepping up their fight against domestic abuse.

The team currently handling cases is expanding. It will also have a bigger role in the protection of victims and the management of dangerous offenders.

The family protection unit, which was set up in 2002 to deal with child and domestic abuse, is to be renamed the Public Protection Unit, police said.

There will also be a new addition to the team, with Insp Geoff Chapman starting with the unit this month.
