Croydon Council has launched a petition requesting the government creates a national register of domestic abuse offenders.

A total of 100,000 signatures are required for the issue to be debated in the House of Commons.

The council feels that a national register of offenders would help the council and police tackle both the symptoms and causes of domestic violence far more effectively.

The petition to the Home Secretary is the latest move in the council’s campaign to tackle domestic abuse and sexual violence by changing attitudes and encouraging everyone to take responsibility.

The council this week announced a three year strategy that will see it take a more radical approach to reducing the number of incidents in Croydon.

This includes a newly funded team of domestic abuse advisors that will work with communities as well as at the Family Justice Centre, as part of an innovative “hub and spoke” approach.

In addition, the council last month announced it would seek to join the international White Ribbon campaign to show its zero tolerance to domestic abuse.

The petition was launched 3 weeks ago and has less than 800 signatures...
