TWO police vans have been transformed into “moving billboards” for a campaign designed to raise awareness of domestic abuse and coercive control.

The States police said that the two vehicles were “a visible sign of our dedication to protect and support victims and survivors”.

The initiative forms part of the Safeguarding Partnership Board’s #SpotTheRedFlags campaign, launched in 2022, which raises awareness of domestic abuse and coercive control, and the effects these issues can have in the workplace, regardless of a person’s gender or sexuality.

The vans display a series of powerful messages and contact information to promote what the police have called a “crucial” cause.

Islanders are being encouraged to make contact with the authorities, confidentially and safely, if they, or someone they know, are experiencing domestic abuse or coercive control.

In an emergency, always call the States police on 999 for immediate help.

Their non-emergency number is 612612.
