The Police ‘Victims' Right to Review’ scheme is non-statutory and was introduced by the National Police Chiefs’ Council in April 2015 in respect of charging decisions made by the police. It sits alongside the scheme introduced by the Crown Prosecution Service in June 2013 and works in a similar way.
Decisions under the police scheme are operational matters for police forces. As a result, the Home Office does not hold data on the operation of the scheme or issue guidance on its use.
