Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHRs)

Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHRs) were established on a statutory basis under the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act 2004.

The key purpose for undertaking DHRs is to enable lessons to be learned from homicides where a person is killed as a result of domestic violence and abuse.

The aim in publishing these reviews is to restore public confidence and improve transparency of the processes in place across all agencies to protect victims.


The reports below contain information from the DHR in the case of “Rabia”.  The names of individuals involved in the case have been anonymised in order to protect the identity of the victim, perpetrator, relevant family members, staff and others, and to comply with the Data Protection Act 1998.
