Ensuring victims gets the right support in the right way, at the right time is an absolute priority for Merseyside's Police Commissioner.
The victim support services commissioned as part of the Commissioner's Victim Care Merseyside service are subject to rigorous management reporting requirements.
This allows the Commissioner to work with Merseyside Police and the service providers to further develop and enhance the care that is provided for some of the most vulnerable people in the region.
The Commissioner holds quarterly meetings with Merseyside Police through the Victims' Programme Board to review how victims are supported from the first moment of contact and scrutinise how the mechanism for referring victims to enhanced support is working.

Meetings are held quarterly and a summary of their meetings with actions is published below.
