How are witnesses treated during a police investigation?

Share by emailShare by email

The standards of care that you can expect as a witness are set out in the Witness Charter. One of the standards that relates to police investigations, states that as a witness, you will be treated fairly and with respect according to your needs irrespective of race, religion, background, gender, age, sexuality or any disability. Where required, additional support will be provided and any reasonable adjustments will be made to ensure that you have equal access to information and support services. This could include the use of an interpreter, a hearing induction loop and accessibility adaptations.
