The Victims of Crime Commissioner is doing an online survey, asking people who have been a victim of crime about their experiences with:

  • victim support services
  • the police
  • the court process.

The crime must have happened in Victoria, but you don’t need to have gone to the police or have used a victim support service.

To do the survey you must be 16 or over, and be:

  • a victim of crime
  • a witness to a crime that injured you
  • the parent, guardian, or carer of a child who was a victim
  • the close family member of a victim of crime who has died.

About the survey

The survey is anonymous and takes 20 to 30 minutes.

Please don’t write your name or anybody else’s or anything that could identify you.

Your responses will be very securely stored. Find out how on our privacy impact statement
