EDMONTON- The United Conservatives are promising to pass a law that would help protect women from domestic violence.

Leader Jason Kenney says if the party wins the upcoming provincial election it would introduce legislation that would allow police to warn partners of someone's violent or abusive past.

He says a UCP government would also increase funding for police to do more about stalking and child exploitation and to improve services for vulnerable women in rural areas.

Kenney says money to pay for the initiatives would come from other programs, including government advertising budgets.

More details are expected later today.
