Nottinghamshire Police have been told to improve the way they tackle domestic abuse after criticisms from an independent watchdog.

Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabularies (HMIC) was commissioned by the Home Secretary Theresa May in September 2013, to inspect the police response to domestic violence and abuse around the country.

It said the Nottinghamshire force’s approach to tackling domestic abuse is effective in some areas, but there are important aspects of the service the force provides to victims requiring further improvement.
