The grieving father who fought for Clare’s Law has called for the scheme to be rolled out nationwide.
Michael Brown’s daughter Clare Wood was raped, strangled and set on fire by her former partner in Salford in 2009.
Mr Brown, of Bradford Road, Batley, has been fighting for more protection for victims of domestic abuse to prevent others from suffering the same fate.
Last September police forces in Greater Manchester, Nottingham, and Gwent and Wiltshire began a pilot of Clare’s Law.
The law allows people to ask police to check whether their partner has a violent past, and gives police powers to proactively release information to protect people from domestic violence.
Last Thursday marked a year since the pilot began and Mr Brown hopes the scheme will be continued and expanded across the UK.
“I think it’s been a roaring success,” he said.
“Greater Manchester Police and Nottingham Police have decided they they will carry on Clare’s Law. I feel good about that, although it’s somewhat bittersweet.”
In Greater Manchester, where Clare lived, police received 109 applications under the scheme, with 62 approved.
“If we have managed to save one girl it’s been worth it,” he added. “Hopefully Clare won’t have died in vain.”
Following the pilot, the Home Office has commissioned an inspection into how police forces are responding to domestic violence, including management of at-risk victims.
Home Secretary Theresa May said although the conviction rate for domestic violence, rape and sexual offences has risen, there are still too many cases like that of Clare Wood, where victims died because warning signs were missed.
A report will be given to the Home Office in April.
