Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme - Clare’s Law
Police forces are allowed to disclose information to a potential victim and have a duty to protect members of the public from domestic abuse.
A disclosure under the Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (Clare’s Law) may be generated by a:
- Right to know obligation on the police to disclose; or
- Right to ask application from a member of the public.
The data below shows the number of disclosure requests (both right to know and right to ask) recorded by West Yorkshire Police and the number of disclosures made.
