Issues of domestic abuse and homicide

Dr Jane Monkton Smith, forensic criminologist, has explored tracking offender behavioural patterns in domestic homicide, stalking and coercive control and the impact on families.

The tools developed by Jane have been implemented by a number of police forces across the country, she has done research with organisations like the Suzie Lamplugh Trust and the Home Office, and she has also helped families impacted by homicide.

The research brings a much needed human voice to illustrate key arguments as well as highlighting the challenges faced by police and paramedics and associated feelings relating to a lack of expertise in managing domestic abuse cases.
