Please write a witness statement as soon as possible after the event.
If you’re a witness to something that’s happening right now, please stop reading this page and give us a call right away on 07946541511.
If you have seen
- an arrest
- an injury
- police brutality
- abuse of police powers
you may be a useful witness if a criminal or civil case goes ahead.
A statement is simply a written account of what you have seen. Nothing more than that!
Please include as many details as you can remember, at least the following:
- Who was involved
- When it happened
- Where it happened
- Where you were standing in relation to the incident
- What happened, in full
Sign and date the statement once you’ve finished.
You can use our template to write your witness statement, either in a text editor or print it out and write it by hand:
Please send your witness statement to us, but be aware that having sent in a witness statement does not automatically mean you will end up being a witness in court. The incident you have witnessed may not end in a court case or there may be other witnesses who have seen more than you. But please do send in your statement anyway!
