A SEMINAR highlighting a campaign to end violence against women was attended by more than 100 people recently.

The event, at Fife Police headquarters, aimed to ensure the force is working effectively by providing training and awareness on tackling violence and domestic abuse.

Superintendent Alex Duncan opened the seminar and presentations were delivered by Chief Inspector Graham Goulden, who heads the campaign on behalf of the violence reduction unit, and Callum Hendry from the White Ribbon Campaig which ampaigns for men to be involved in the aim of ending violence against women.

The latter trained 15 Fife officers as campaign speakers.

Superintendent Duncan said: “Crimes of violence affect individuals, families and communities - and it is important that we work together to provide the most effective response.”

Mr Hendry added: “We are delighted that Fife Police is pro-actively involving men in tackling violence against women.

“Having the opportunity to deliver training to local speakers greatly increases the capacity of the campaign to get the message out.’’
