Victims

Supporting victims web bannerHave you been the victim of crime or know someone who has?  We work very closely with a number of organisations who help support victims of crime.

The Victims’ Information Service is a nationwide service which helps you find local support after a crime takes place. It brings together information on what will happen after reporting a crime, the people you might meet, the help you should get and how to complain if something goes wrong.

Warwickshire Police has some useful pages for victims, including how you go about reporting a crime. The Victims Code 2015 sets out what services you can expect from the criminal justice agencies in Warwickshire. To understand how the code applies to under 18’s click here.

The Victims Commissioner Baroness Newlove also recently published a leaflet for victims of crime entitled “What I Wished I’d Known” based on her personal experience of the criminal justice system. This is a useful publication to read if you are a victim of crime. It can be viewed here (opens in a new window).
