A campaign has been launched by police in Cambridgeshire, England, to highlight and reach out to male victims of domestic violence. The campaign is the second that the force have targeted at male victims of abuse.
Detective Inspector Alan Page, of Cambridgeshire Police, said:
“Throughout the year we run a number of high-profile campaigns to target women who are victims of domestic abuse and it’s important this work continues as they represent around 75 per cent of victims.
“However we believe there are men out there who are not reporting the abuse they suffer and it is those men we are trying to reach out to this Valentine’s.
“We have anecdotal evidence to suggest domestic abuse against men is under-reported and we know from feedback we have received that some men do not feel there is enough work done to highlight this issue.”
The initiative features a poster with an image of a flower, and the words “she loves me, she loves me not”. In addition, Facebook adverts and print advertising are being used to support the campaign.
