An internal project to address domestic violence amidst members of the police force was started and abandoned in 2019.

A document relased under the Official Information Act reveals there were plans to install counselling, training, support lines and a clear family harm policy.

However, this project, titled "The Lighthouse Project", was "superseded by district priorities" and never came to fruition. 

Rachel Simpson spoke to Dr Ang Jury, CEO of Women's Refuge about domestic violence in the police force - and how little is revealed about what happens in the ranks.
