Being a Witness

Police Officer talking with a member of the PublicBeing a witness is very important because without them there is no justice. In short, it means No Witness, No Justice.

Since April 2003, all the criminal justice agencies and partnering organisations have been involved in the No Witness, No Justice programme, aimed at making the victim and witness experience as efficient and appreciative of individual needs as possible.

No Witness, No Justice puts victims and witnesses of crime at the heart of the criminal justice system, providing the assistance and care where it is needed most.

Their joint aim is to make the victim and feel supported, guided and appreciated for attending Court and giving evidence.
