When someone has been killed as a result of domestic violence, a multi-agency review is carried out. Professionals who have not been involved in the case must examine events in order to identify ways to reduce the risk of it happening again in the future.

If a domestic homicide takes place in Wirral, Merseyside Police will make sure the appropriate people in the Community Safety Team are told as quickly as possible. After this initial notification, a decision will be made about whether we need to have a Domestic Homicide Review using the Home Office guidance.
