Views on Crime Wanted as North Yorkshire Victims' Charter Developed

Julia Mulligan

6:01am 4th January 2013

People are being asked how they have been treated by North Yorkshire police after becoming victims of crime.

The county's Police Commissioner Julia Mulligan wants our views, which will be used to help shape her new Victims' Charter.

The document will set out minimum standards officers have to meet when supporting victims and now a survey has been launched to get opinions of people in North Yorkshire.

When elected Julia Mulligan said: "I will be working with the police, Victim Support and other organisations to develop a local Victims' Charter. The Charter will focus on victims of crime and anti-social behaviour and will involve a two-month period of research. People will be able to have their say on Twitter, by Facebook and to contact my office directly via email. I will also be running a series of focus groups with victims of crime and with voluntary organisations involved in supporting victims."

"The Charter will set out the standards of service to be expected by victims here in North Yorkshire and the City of York and will contain a number of recommendations about what we can do here to ensure that victims receive the support they need."

To give your views on what should be in the charter, please visit the Police and Crime Commissioner’s website www.northyorkshire-pcc.gov.uk
