The Victims' Charter sets out principles on how the criminal justice system and victim service agencies should respond to victims of crime. 

The Charter is contained in legislation called the Victims' Charter Act (2006), which came into effect on 1 November 2006. 

As a result of the Victims' Charter, you can expect to be treated with courtesy, respect and dignity by the police, the Office of Public Prosecutions and victim support services at all times.
