Petition Action

Ensure the police offer victim support within 24 hours

Petition Details

The Government should create new requirements for police forces and fund increased capacity to ensure that officers or a family support officer check in on victims within 24 hours of reporting a crime, to offer support and advice on what happens next.

Additional Information

In too many cases it can take days for the police to check in with a victim, which can leave them feeling alone, unsupported and scared. As tax payers surely we have the right to have the support and advice from the professionals.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
