If you are a victim of a crime, you may consider reporting the incident to the police. Not everyone feels comfortable with this, but this section of the website will help to explain the different ways that this may be done and will answer some of your questions.
This section gives you information about:
- The importance of reporting a crime
- How to report a crime
- What happens if you do not report a crime
- What happens after a crime is reported
- What happens after you have been interviewed
- What happens if you are harassed
Whether you decide to report the crime to the police or not, there are still support organisations, such as Victim Support Scotland, who can offer you help and advice. Whatever you decide, it can be helpful to talk to someone about what’s happened and how you feel about it.
