"Sarb has exceptional knowledge of Honour Based Violence (HBV) within ethnic communities.
She has been used as a subject matter expert and resource for Surrey Police so that officers and staff can deliver a better service in response to reports of HBV.
She has also delivered similar training to the Metropolitan Police Service.
I commend her efforts to improve HBV and ensure that it is recognised and tackled by Government services."
Kevin Hurley – Police and Crime Commissioner (Nov 2014)
"Overall Sarbjit is a great colleague to work with, who brings a lot of passion to her work.
The FMU has been working with Sarbjit to continually share ideas on how best to tackle forced marriage – her unwavering spirit in continually wanting to raise the level of consciousness about the issue is commendable, despite current financial constraints.
Her particular strengths lie in the fact that her past experiences place her in good stead to effectively campaign against all types of violence against women.
Chaz Akoshile - Joint Head, Forced Marriage Unit
"Sarbjit’s book is brilliant, so good in fact that I’ve passed on not only to others within my team but to the Constabulary as well. Sarbjit is very open about her experience and you’re able to put yourself in her place and fully understand the fear she must have felt in her position.
This book provides a unique perspective of an honour killing and her experience is one many people can learn from.
This is one part of some valuable work Sarbjit does using her experience to support victims and she should be very proud of the work she’s doing.”
Sue Mountstevens – Police and Crime Commissioner (Oct 2014)
