The Victims’ Right to Review (VRR) scheme gives victims the right to request a review of a Police decision not to prosecute a suspect.
The right of a victim to request a review arises where the police:
•Make a decision not to bring proceedings in cases where the police have authority to charge; or
•Make a decision that the case does not meet the Threshold Test for referral to the CPS for a charging decision.
As a victim of crime if you feel that your case has not been handled appropriately under the above circumstances, you have the right to request a review of your case.
How can victims exercise the right under the scheme?
