Share your experiences of crime
5:30am Saturday 26th July 2014 in News
POLICE and Crime Commissioner Angus Macpherson has renewed his call to victims of crime to let him know about their experiences.
Dozens of people from across Wiltshire and Swindon have already responded, but he wants to hear from as many victims and witnesses as possible.
Anyone thinking of completing his questionnaire will need to move fast: the deadline is 5pm on Monday.
From April 2015 Mr Macpherson will be responsible for commissioning local services to support victims so he is consulting with people to ensure their views are taken on board.
Mr Macpherson said: “I want to help people cope with the impact of crime and to recover from the experience. I want the new victim services to focus on the most vulnerable and those people least likely to report crime.”
He added: “It will help me to understand your experience of being a victim and then of going through the criminal justice system and what effect that had emotionally, financially and socially.”
