This section gives you information about voluntary organisations that can give you help, support and advice. It also explains the role of public sector agencies, such as the police. The standards of service you should expect to receive from the organisations you may come across in the criminal justice system are also explained. Specialised advice may also be found here for victims of particular crimes.
This part explains why you should consider reporting a crime and the process of doing so. It also explains how the crime will be investigated. If you choose not to report a crime, this section explains that support is still available for you.
The criminal justice process can seem to be very complicated. This section is broken down into different parts that explain what may happen to you. A diagram is included to help to illustrate this.
