Erdan to request NIS 22 million for police initiatives against domestic violence

Internal Security Minister Gilad Erdan will request an additional NIS 22 million be added to his budget to help police in their efforts to combat domestic violence in Israel, according to reports.

Erdan will make the request tomorrow at a meeting of the newly-established ministerial committee set up to fight domestic violence

At least 24 women were killed in Israel this year, most of whom notified the police prior to their deaths that they were concerned for their safety.
