Labour promises to implement “Raneem’s Law” to improve the way police handle domestic abuse

According to the Labour Party, the way the police respond to domestic abuse needs to be changed so that “no more missed opportunities” exist to save the lives of women.

In an effort to change how the police respond to incidents of violence against women and girls, the party pledged on Wednesday to implement “Raneem’s Law,” which is named after Raneem Oudeh.

2018 saw the murders of Ms. Oudeh, 22, and her mother, Khaola Saleem, 49. The killer was Ms. Oudeh’s former partner. Errors by West Midlands Police were found to have “materially contributed” to their deaths during an inquest held four years after their deaths.

Ms. Oudeh had phoned West Midlands Police four times the night they were killed, expressing worries for her safety. The police had also been called to ten domestic abuse incidents connected to the case before. Because of the shortcomings, which Ms. Oudeh’s family called “beyond imagination,” five cops received disciplinary actions.

Labour’s ideas would increase early intervention by setting stricter time limitations for determining whether victims require a protective civil order. Domestic abuse specialists would be stationed in 999 control rooms across the nation, mimicking a system used in Northumbria.

In these situations, police agencies must also disclose data on the number of civil orders they have sought for and the reasons behind those denials, as well as designate a specific person to oversee the execution of protective orders.

“Labour will deliver a step change in tackling violence against women and girls, overhauling the early policing response to these terrible crimes that devastate lives and corrode the very fabric of our society.

“Enough is enough. We cannot stand by as every generation faces the same threats of abuse and violence as the last. That’s why we have set out an unprecedented mission to halve violence against women and girls within a decade.”

One of Ms. Saleem’s sisters and Ms. Oudeh’s aunt, Nour Norris, stated: “As a family we are scarred by the agony of domestic violence.

“Our hope is simple: that the police will truly understand the hurdles faced by women who report violence, threats and abuse, and that they transform their approach to saving lives.

“Our plea is for a future where no other family suffers as we have. Raneem’s Law will help to make sure that is the case.”
