‘Just as technology can be used in harmful ways by perpetrators of domestic abuse and stalking, it can also be used positively to support victims and survivors to feel safe, whether at home, work, or out and about.
I really welcome the work of the Hollie Gazzard Trust in developing the ‘Hollie Guard Extra’ app, which makes use of new technology to bring reassurance to victims and survivors and provide round-the-clock and immediate response to an alert or incident. I am particularly encouraged that evidence collected by the app is admissible in court, vital if we are to bring perpetrators to justice.’
Cllr. Nicole Jacobs Domestic Abuse Commissioner for England and Wales
