Victim and witness support

The anti-social behaviour team operates a 24-hour victim and witness support service. A member of the team is on call at all times to provide support to vulnerable victims and witnesses.

Services include:

  • visiting you at home, at different times if required, to see evidence of possible intimidation and provide reassurance
  • taking telephone reports at any time of day or night, to listen to your concerns and advise if any urgent measures are needed
  • preparing you for the case and accompanying you to court, if your case goes to court and you will be giving evidence
  • with your consent, passing on information on the next working day (if you have called at night or at the weekend) to partner services who are helping with the case.
