Victims’ champion praises Herts’ pioneering scheme

The woman charged with championing victims’ rights across England and Wales is keeping a sharp eye on Herts Police’s efforts to tackle so-called ‘honour abuse’.

Baroness Newlove, 
Victims’ Commissioner for England and Wales, met with Hertfordshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner David Lloyd earlier this month to 
discuss the workings of the criminal justice system.

The baroness also 
expressed interest in a unique new initiative where vulnerable victims are appointed their own case managers to support them in the aftermath of a crime.

The Hertfordshire Victim Care Centre is available 
to offer support to anyone 
who has been a victim of 
crime in Hertfordshire, 
regardless of whether they have reported the incident to the police.
