It is recognised that tackling anti-social behaviour and other crime related issues are of great concern for residents living in Cannock Chase.
We are urging football fans to ‘show domestic abuse the red card’ during the football season which will be watched by many at home.
Research shows that incidents of domestic abuse rise sharply during major football tournaments by up to 25 per cent.
With the first football game kicking off this week, people will be watching the games from their homes due to the pandemic. This again could increase tensions within households, resulting in incidences of domestic abuse.
In response to this, our Community Safety Partnership has teamed up with local partners including Staffordshire Police, New Era (domestic abuse service), the Staffordshire Commissioner’s Office and local authorities across Staffordshire to deliver some important messages.
