Support for victims and witnesses

Cambridgeshire Constabulary and our criminal justice partners are committed to giving you the best possible service at all times.

Being a victim or witness of crime can be distressing and traumatic. These pages are designed to provide you with help and support, relevant information and advice with links to other partner organisations that can assist you.

A code of practice that aims to improve victims’ contact with criminal justice agencies came into force in December 2013.

The Code of Practice for Victims of Crime aims to provide victims with the support and information they need and can be found here along with a Ministry of Justice leaflet
