Reporting a crime to the Police

We understand that this is not always an easy decision to make, and you may have lots of questions about what happens when you report to the police. We have tried to ease your concerns by answering some frequently asked questions.

You can find more information and advice from Victim support too, click here if you are in England and Wales and here if you are in Scotland. 

Going to court 

Once someone has been charged with a crime, the case is passed to the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service) and it’s their job to put together the case for court. They will collect the police’s evidence, liaise with witnesses and attend court hearings to present their case.
