Chapter Summary

This section contains a list of reference articles and books with relevant to the discussion on the problem of 'improving' the policing of marital violence is conceptualised by police reformers as principally one of changing the practices and community responsiveness of the police to adopting a more interventionist approach in domestic situations. Evidence of a willingness to improve the policing of marital violence in the Singapore Police Force (SPF) could be traced to the introduction of the Domestic Violence Project at a police division in April 1995. The project, which was organised around an elaborate network comprising the police and social service agencies, was essentially an administrative set-up designed to assist victims of domestic violence in making a formal complaint, rather than being a consequence of legislative change to substantive law governing police conduct.
