Serial wife-beaters could be forced to register with police under new proposals by senior officers.
Men who repeatedly abuse women face having their movements and activities tracked under plans to combat domestic violence.
Vulnerable women and girls may also be given a ‘right to know’ about persistent offenders if police feel they are at risk.
The moves are among several recommendations expected to be unveiled by Wiltshire Chief Constable Brian Moore today.
He was asked to review powers held by police and the courts for dealing with domestic violence offenders by former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith.
