EUPOLCOPPS supports Palestinian Police to launch hotline service to combat domestic violence

EUPOL COPPS Mission provided on Monday 29/06/20 hundreds of stickers and notepads to raise the awareness of the public about the plan of the Palestinian Civil Police – Family Protection Unit – to launch a hotline that would enable the public to file complaints about domestic violence.

The hotline which will be announced soon will make it easier for women to seek police support and protection.
The Mission also financed a short video to educate the public about the new service and to encourage the people to come forward and file cases pertaining to domestic violence.

The stickers, which come in the form of fridge magnet and car stickers, carry several messages such as ‘Say Enough to Violence’ and ‘Together we fight domestic violence in all kinds’.

“The aim is to reach to a maximum number of people and let them know about the existence of the holtline. These are extremely useful items that will help us in raising the awareness of people. We say to the public that the police is ready to help and to contribute in solving problems,” said colonel Jihad Haj Ali.
