How you can be protected

You have the right to be protected during the investigation.

The police should tell you:

  • How and under what conditions you can access protection (including the use of protection measures)
  • Special arrangements that can be put in place if you are a child victim.

You have the right to have your individual protection needs assessed

  • You should be protected from being victimized all over again, from being intimidated, targeted for revenge or be from being at risk of emotional or psychological harm.
  • If you need special measures, the police will try to have a trained person interview you.
