New DV Court Example for Country (UK)
Special status for North Tyneside court
By TEGAN CHAPMAN
NORTH Tyneside Magistrates' Court has been given specialist Domestic Violence Court status, giving victims enhanced support as they go through the Criminal Justice System.
The process, which has gained Newcastle and North Tyneside magistrates' courts the national SDVC accreditation, has also been hailed nationally as an example to the rest of the country.
The Specialist Domestic Violence Court Programme in Northumbria is led by Northumbria Criminal Justice Board.
