One for the blue force members

Just wondering as there are few members on here who are with the police if you could clarify something.

A friend was a victim of assult and following the incident gave statment to the policy and the whole matter is heading for courts as it was a serious incident.

However he has requested from the offices running with the case a copy of his statement. Simply so to sort his own thoughts and ensure he doesnt forget things.

To which he was told he wanst allowed to have it and the force does not provide them.

Surely since it is his personal statement of the matter he is entitled to it.

Any ideas

thank you

I wonder if identity is at the heart of the matter here, that would certainly explain the reluctance. But it does depend on the nature of the incident, specifics of the offence and overall nature of the case.

However, your friend should not overly worry as when the matter approaches Court, they should be given full support and a walk through of the process (includingg a tour of the Court room, intoeduction to Court procedure, chat with CPS lawyer leading the case in court etc. etc.) and much closer to the event, a copy of their statement (evidence) before the actual trial. They will also have access to their statement on the day and depending on their involvement in the case, will be walked through it by the prosecution. If it is a serious incident then they should have a nominated Witness Support contact and they should reach out to them. Can't comment on the quoted policy but it's not routine to release statements.
