PLANS to provide better support to victims will be rolled out across the force as part of the police and crime commissioner’s policing priorities.

The Cheshire victim information pack, which is funded by commissioner David Keane, has been updated to reflect feedback from residents.

This includes augmented reality software which brings the booklet to life through video technology.

Information has also been translated into different languages.

Head of the criminal justice department Jon Betts said: “The victim information pack is an excellent tool for helping victims understand the process and help direct them to the specialist help and support if they need it.

“The addition of the videos within the pack enables the booklet to come to life making it more accessible and more engaging for the reader ensuring they are fully informed.”

Mr Keane hopes the new changes will ensure the victims are aware of their options.

He said: “I have set a clear commitment that policing in Cheshire will put victims first. 

“The victim information pack plays a crucial role in ensuring if you are unfortunate enough to become a victim you understand your rights. 

“The pack has been designed to assist Cheshire residents in finding support and services that are available to help you cope and recover from the experience."
