Sussex Police has become the first in the country to earn an award for its fight against domestic violence.
The White Ribbon certificate was handed over to Chief Constable Martin Richards at the Mumford and Sons festival in Lewes on Saturday.
The White Ribbon is an international campaign to ensure men take responsibility for reducing domestic violence.
Sussex Chief Constable Martin Richards, speaking at the festival, said: “Domestic abuse is still largely a hidden crime occurring behind closed doors.
“Last year we launched a campaign to encourage earlier reporting of domestic abuse and encourage its victims to talk to police and partner agencies and not suffer in silence.”
