The code of practice for Victims of Crime was published in December 2013, updating the previous code published in 2006. The code places statutory obligations on the police and probation services, the courts, Youth Offending Teams and other criminial justice agencies.

It clearly sets out what victims can expect - your key entitlements - from those people dealing with your crime, front first point of contact, which is usually reporting a crime, through to charge and/or outcome, including a court case. The code also sets out your rights as a victim.

Nobody asks to be a victim of crime. Even what, to some people, might appear to be a minor crime can have a significant impact on the victim, causing inconvinience, worry or stress.

More serious crimes can, of course, cause even greater problems for victims, and also those who witness such crimes.
