The guide states that the police will give or instruct the victim on where to get the Victims of Crime leaflet, keep the victim updated on a monthly basis until the case is closed, and inform the victims of any decisions to charge or not to charge a suspect. The guide continues through the evidence collection process, covers the courtroom process, and continues through to the probation and parole process.
