A Tweetathon is being hosted by Thames Valley Police today in support of Domestic Abuse: In Focus week.
The national focus on domestic violence began on Monday and finishes tomorrow.
At 7am the force began tweeting about the domestic abuse incidents reported to its control rooms, as well as the work being undertaken to tackle domestic abuse and to support victims.
It is using the hastags #TVP_infocus, #speakouttoday, #infocus and #domesticabuse.
The week is being held as a new scheme - the Domestic Violence Disclosure Scheme - is being implemented nationally to allow the disclosure of information about an individual's history of domestic violence offending.
It is also known as Clare's Law, named after Clare Wood, who was murdered by her former partner in Greater Manchester in 2009.
Thames Valley Police has been tweeting throughout the week.
