Details

Witnesses are key to ensuring that justice is delivered and they play an important part in the justice system. Understanding the extent to which people witness crime and the attitudes witnesses of crime have towards the criminal justice system (CJS) is important for the Ministry of Justice. This report provides an overview of the extent to which people witness crime, whether witnesses go on to interact with the police and their levels of confidence in the CJS. The report is based on an analysis of the 2013 to 2014 Crime Survey for England and Wales.
