New Victims’ Champion for Dorset Announced
Jackie Farquharson has been appointed as the new Victims' Champion for Dorset. This role ensures that Dorset Police provides victims with the support and information they need on their journey through the criminal justice system.
Jackie said: "I'm really excited to be starting in this role. A great deal of positive work has been undertaken to improve the support of victims and witnesses but there is still a disparity between victim code compliance and reality: my appointment reflects the recognition that more can be done.
"In the next month I will be establishing a Victims' Champion Forum and inviting key officers and staff to identify problems to delivering the Victims Code and to finding solutions."
