Witness Care Unit

Witnessing a crime, perhaps even giving evidence in court is a daunting prospect for most people which is why the States of Jersey Police together with partner agencies, Victim support and the Witness Service have set up the Witness Care Unit.

The unit, staffed by Police and volunteers, helps people through the court process.

The Witness Charter has been developed to help witnesses through the process of criminal proceedings.

It is aimed at telling them how they can expect to be treated by the police and subsequently by other criminal justice agencies (including the courts) and lawyers if they are asked to give evidence for the prosecution or defence in a criminal court.

It also sets out what help and support they can expect to receive at every stage of the process.

The Witness Care Unit is currently seeking a number of dedicated individuals who are prepared to give their time to volunteer for the WCU.

If you would like a rewarding voluntary positon that allows you to help people facing difficult circumstances then this could be just for you.
