Victims of domestic abuse are supporting a campaign to encourage more women to speak out.
Figures show two women in the UK are killed each week as a result of abuse.
Last year, 13, 281 incidents of domestic violence were reported to Cleveland Police alone - this is an 11% reduction on 2011.
52% of these crimes were detected and the offender was either given a caution or charged to court.
Detective Inspector Mike Cane, of Cleveland Police, spoke to ITV News about the rise in figures in the past few years.
