A focus group to study the attitudes of police officers on domestic violence in Silistra

The 11 regional police inspectors in the Silistra region who took part in the focus group shared diverse policies and specific practices in urban and rural areas. The meeting took place in Silistra on February 19, 2020 and was organized by Animus Association Foundation, together with the Society and Safety Foundation.

The importance of good awareness and proximity of police officers to citizens and their problems were some of the key points of the focus group. Police officers from all three regional police departments - Silistra, Dulovo and Tutrakan, took part in the focus group.

We are grateful for the shared experience, which once again illustrates that coping with violence requires coordinated efforts.

We would also like to thank the Ekaterina Karavelova - Silistra Women's Association for their support in carrying out this activity.
