“Greater Manchester Police (GMP) said 65 people had requested to be told about a boyfriend or an individual who was in a relationship with someone they knew.”
The Greater Manchester, Wiltshire, Nottinghamshire and Gwent police forces are presently involved a year long scheme, which will end in September.
Detective Supt. Phil Owen said the scheme was “a preventative measure” and allowed “potential victims to take control of their life and make an informed decision about whether to stay with somebody or not”.
The Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme (DVDS) is nicknamed Clare's Law, after Clare Wood from Salford who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend George Appleton in February 2009.
Clare and Appleton had met on Facebook.
She did not know his history of domestic violence such as repeated harassment, threats and knifepoint kidnapping of an ex-girlfriend on gun point.
She had complained several times to the police about him before her death.
Tony Lloyd, Police and Crime Commissioner for Greater Manchester, said:
“We need to continue raising awareness of the scheme and work together to rid society of this terrible crime which has untold, long-lasting effects on victims”.
