Improving support for victims of crime

Our objective is to recognise and prevent the harm caused to victims by the crime they experience, and the need to protect those who are most vulnerable to becoming victims.

We will:

  • Continue to champion the rights of victims and encourage reporting.
  • Work with partners to ensure victims receive appropriate tailored support and are confident to report crime or, if they choose, to seek non-custodial resolutions and out of court disposals.
  • Monitor and work with partners to drive compliance with the Victim’s Code.
  • Ensure victims are referred to support services tailored to their needs.
  • Promote and expand the use of Restorative Justice across the county as a proven method to aid recovery for victims and reduce reoffending.
  • Improve the sharing of data to help identify those most vulnerable to becoming victims.
  • Deliver tailored, multi-agency interventions to reduce the number of people becoming victims.
  • Proactively work with criminal justice partners to ensure that victims receive timely and appropriate justice.
  • Push for more powers to commission criminal justice services and bring together agencies to improve offender management.
  • Provide extra support and early intervention for people with additional needs or who are at increased risk.

So that victims and vulnerable people are encouraged to come forward and can get the help and support they are entitled to.
