A Victim Personal Statement (VPS) gives victims of crime the opportunity to make a statement about how the crime has affected them. This could be how the crime has affected them physically or emotionally, whether they feel vulnerable or intimidated, or if the victim is worried about the defendant being granted bail.
The posters and publication spread shown here are aimed at encouraging police officers and criminal justice practitioners to offer victims of crime the chance to make a VPS.
The illustrations reflect a broad spectrum of crimes, big and small, and show the effect of those crimes on their victims. Illustrations by Neil Webb – www.neilwebb.net
