If the police record a crime against me against my wishes they will do anything to detect the crime. This could include speaking to people about what has happened that I don’t want them to. This is an intrusion into my life and could cause me further unnessecary problems.
Wether I, the victim, want it or not the police will record and investigate a crime against. This should be down to the choice of the victim not the police. Obviously for the venerable and children this choice would be for a carer or third party.
