London Police Service Inspector John Robinson made considerable efforts to support women who had experienced abuse. Under his leadership, a new policy on mandatory charging in cases of domestic violence was instituted in London, and would later become a provincial and national directive. The inaugural award was given to John Robinson in 1988 for his groundbreaking work. The LCCEWA continues to honour John’s work by recognizing individuals or agencies who have promoted substantial change in the area of woman abuse, and that capture John’s tenacious spirit, showing leadership and creativity.
