Supporting victims is one of Commissioner Paddy Tipping’s highest priorities. Determined to place their interests and needs first, he has been working to ensure that services are the best they can be.
As a result, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Nottinghamshire has commissioned a range of support services for victims of crime who reside in the County. These services include support for general victims, young people, domestic abuse victims, sexual assault victims and victims of stalking or harassment.
In addition to these services, there is also a Restorative Justice Service. Further information about all of these services can be found at www.nottsvictimcare.org.uk.

The Commissioner, with the Police, City and County Councils, is committed to ensuring victims and survivors get the help they need, as well as bringing perpetrators to justice and ensuring professional standards are upheld.
