As part of Operation Encompass how many contacts did your Police force make to schools about domestic abuse incidents during 2019 and 2020 to date.
If you don’t operate the Operation Encompass Scheme, but a similar scheme then please explain what scheme you run and give figures for the scheme you do operate for the dates above.
Whilst the States of Jersey Police are not part of the UK polices’ Operation Encompass, we do operate a similar scheme which aims to advise any educational establishment of any domestic incidents at the home of a child.
The local protocol sets out a joint-agency procedure to provide, by early intervention, appropriate support for children and young people who have experienced / witnessed domestic abuse in their household.
The protocol provides for a police and education early information sharing partnership enabling schools to offer immediate support for children and young people experiencing domestic abuse. Information is shared by the police with a school's trained Key Adult (DSL) prior to the start of the next school day after officers have attended a domestic abuse incident thus enabling appropriate support to be given, dependent upon the needs and wishes of the child.”
The number of referrals made to educational establishments for 2019/20 are below. Figures for the academic year 20/21 are not yet available.
