The police and statutory and voluntary agencies set up to tackle domestic abuse in Guernsey work far more closely together than they used to, according to the chairwoman of domestic abuse charity Safer Guernsey.
Dr Maggie Costen said domestic abuse was still happening in the island but agencies were getting better at tackling it.
She said it was important that incidents of abuse are reported to police.
