Domestic Violence Protection Orders (DVPO) force offenders to leave residences and stay away from victims.
More than 180 of the orders were issued in North and South Manchester, Oldham, Salford and Bolton over the past year.
The orders are being tested by the Greater Manchester, Wiltshire and West Mercia police forces.
Det Supt Phil Owen said the DVPOs would help save lives, adding: "Nationally two women a week die due to domestic abuse and our aim is to reduce the harm caused by domestic abuse and help victims regain control of their lives."
The magistrate-granted orders ban people who have committed domestic violence from contacting their victims or entering their home for a period of time, with those who breach the rules sentenced to up to six weeks in prison.
Before they were introduced, the victim would be moved away from the home to safety as police could only ban offenders from their homes if they had been arrested and charged with a crime.
The DVPOs allow police to intervene where they believe a person to be at risk, but do not have enough evidence to bring a criminal charge.
As part of the scheme, victims are offered help and advice from support workers, and abusers are given the chance to attend a voluntary offenders' programme.
A 64-year-old woman, who was granted a DVPO after suffering abuse from her partner for 21 years, said it had changed her life.
The orders will now be trialled across the county for a further 12 months.
The use of Domestic Violence Protection Orders (DVPO), which force offenders to leave residences and stay away from victims, began in the area in July.
Det Supt Philip Owen:
"In the past where there was no other alternative, police and partners would remove the victim and their family away from their home to a place of safety," he said.
"However, under this pilot, the perpetrator is the one who has to move out of the home and who is held to account, allowing the victims to stay in their own homes rather than flee to a friend's home, or a refuge, to escape their abuser.
"The courts can order the perpetrator not to go near the victim for up to 28 days and that allows the victim to take stock and decide where they want to be.
"They can get help from Victim Support Services, solicitors and other support services who can draw up a safety plan."
