CPPT Victim Support

Victim liaison officers from CPPT work with victims of sexual and violent crime, where the offenders are sent to prison for 12 months or more. Cambridgeshire Constabulary staff or staff in the Witness Care Unit will pass your details to the VLS, unless you do not want them to.

You will get a letter from your victim liaison officer introducing the service and asking if you would like contact. A meeting can take place at your home or somewhere else. We can also contact you by telephone or letter.

The victim liaison officers keep victims informed about the offender’s sentence, provide the opportunity for victims to give their views on proposed conditions surrounding the offender’s release, and inform them of any conditions of release which relate to contact with the victim.

Victim liaison officers inform and seek the victim’s agreement to any special victim protection arrangements which are proposed and receive and act upon information from victims and their families about breaches of release conditions.

Victims should hear from our victim liaison officers within eight weeks of the offender being sentenced at court. Victims’ involvement with the service is voluntary.

The Women’s Safety Worker helps women victims and any children to access full support, advice and assistance from other relevant organisations, to ensure they are safe. Victims are given regular updates about how the offender is progressing on the programme and asked for feedback about his behaviour at regular intervals, including when the programme is over.

Other agencies helping victims in Cambridgeshire include Victim Support.
