Controlling and coercive behaviour - #CutYourStrings

Controlling and coercive behaviour is domestic abuse. It is illegal.

Does your partner often make serious threats to control and manipulate you? 

Does your partner often track your movements and monitor your devices to control you?

Does your partner often isolate you from your friends, family or interests?

These are just some examples of controlling and coercive behaviour. It is domestic abuse. It is illegal.

Don't suffer abuse - #CutYourStrings and get help now. There is lots of support and information available below. 

Watch the #CutYourStrings animations below. 


These animations were produced by Dorset Police and show just some of the examples of controlling and coercive behaviour. The Cut Your Strings campaign was made in collaboration with Bournemouth University, the Dorset High Sheriff John Young, Dorset Police, the Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner, Wessex Crown Prosecution Service and Safer Poole Partnership victim support services.

It was also supported by the members of the Dorset Criminal Justice Board (DCJB) and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall.
