Victim and Witness Support in Norfolk
Norfolk remains one of the safest counties in the country, with
crime having fallen consistently over the past few years.
However, in the unlikely event that you become a victim or
witness to a crime or anti-social behaviour incident and have to
attend court, both the Norfolk Constabulary and Norfolk Crown
Prosecution Service are committed to delivering an excellent
service to you, using trained local staff that understand and can
meet your needs.
This is our personal commitment to you;
“We will provide you with the information you need, in a timely
manner and in the format you choose, to ensure that you fully
understand and are comfortable with the criminal justice
process. We will understand your needs and work with our
Criminal Justice partners to ensure we do all we can to meet
them. Where this is not possible, we will explain the reasons

are given appropriate support to help you give your best evidence.
We will explain our decisions to you when we stop a case or if we
decrease or increase the charges in your case"
- Andrew Baxter, Chief Crown Prosecutor for Norfolk, Crown
