Abstract

An increased awareness about how trauma impacts upon children and adults is vital for the identification of vulnerability, development of trauma-informed policing and strengthening the case for the prevention. ACEs provide an easily understandable framework which could help to develop trauma-informed practice and responses. However, there are potential misuses of ACEs in policing, for example using ACE scores or specific single ACEs as the basis for decisions or as intervention thresholds. In this article we review the current evidence with a focus on the strengths, current issues and risks in the use of ACEs across policing
