PCSO Tells His Domestic Abuse Survivor Story

Devon and Cornwall Police launch domestic abuse awareness campaign to encourage people to seek help and report abuse.

Devon and Cornwall Police say domestic abuse can happen to anyone, at any age, in any kind of relationship. 

Domestic abuse isn't just physical and can take many forms, such as intimidation, financial control, psychological abuse and others. 

James, who's now a PCSO with Devon and Cornwall Police was abused by his partner and ended up in hospital - it was only then that he had the courage to speak out and change his life.




1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men are affected by domestic abuse at some point during their lifetime.

Research suggests that, on average, a victim will suffer 35 attacks at the hands of their abuser before seeking help.
