The very first Domestic Violence Protection Order [DVPO] in Cambridgeshire, was granted on Tuesday July 15th by Cambridge Magistrates' Court against a 42-year-old man from Cambridge.
The order was applied for after an alleged violent incident on July 12th, and will be in place for 28 days. The DVPO prevents the 42-year-old male from visiting the home of, or contacting, his former partner, a 50-year-old woman from Cambridge.
Det Insp Alan Page said: "This is the first time DVPO to be issued by the force since we launched them two weeks ago.
"It demonstrates our commitment to use every power available to us in order to protect victims of abuse and reduce the likelihood of further incidents.
"This order will give the victim time to consider the next steps she may wish to take without the threat of further violence."
If a DVPO is breached the offender faces two months in prison or a fine of up to £5,000.
