New DVD for victims

Victims and witnesses involved in Derbyshire crimes are to be given a new DVD and booklet to guide them through the criminal justice process.

The Justice Information Guide Supporting and Advising Witnesses (JIGSAW) pack was launched this week.

The DVD and booklet tells victims and witnesses how the case will progress from the moment the crime is reported to what they can expect at court and what an appeal could mean.

The DVD will also be available on the force website www.derbyshire.police.uk.
