Guidance for Police Management of Strangulation

The Institute for Addressing Strangulation (IFAS) has been working with the Police since the Institute was launched in 2022 after the introduction of new legislation on strangulation, establishing this crime as a standalone offence. From this work, we have developed guidance for police officers to embed within their work to support the response to and management of cases of strangulation.

We are now opening a consultation on these guidelines to gather feedback from professionals seeking to input into their development.
This consultation will close at 5pm on Friday 26th July.
