More victims of domestic abuse are breaking their silence and nearly 10,000 incidents were reported in the last year.
Police say the increased number of calls is down to operation NOVA (Say No to Violence and Abuse), which saw 8,406 reports of domestic violence in its first year ending in March 2011.
Calls soared to 9,982 in the year to March 2013.
Chief Insp Daryl Pearce said: “At Lincolnshire Police we are committed to protecting and supporting those in abusive and controlling relationships.
“We wanted to use this campaign to highlight the issue and to ensure that those coming in to the county know that Lincolnshire Police will robustly investigate all reports of domestic abuse.
“We will also provide support to businesses, community contacts and groups with simple advice on how to support victims and their families should they be placed in a position where they need help.”
