How useful is a protection order?

Shine is concerned that a protection order against now convicted Nikki Roper failed to protect and did not save Alexsis Tovizi life. The delay in moving the court order into action at the ground level by Police CYF and service providers makes a Protection order lose its intended power and effect as in this tragic case. It underlines the need for these agencies and providers to connect well with the court in a timely way. Because each case is different each must be treated with care and there is no one-size-fits-all Protection Order for every offender. More on Jill Proudfoot's comment here
