VC analysis of victims’ reasons for withdrawing sexual offence complaints

This analysis provides insights into the attrition of sexual offences complaints through the criminal justice system. Specifically, the analysis presents findings about victims’ reasons for withdrawing sexual offence complaints from investigation. Our findings are based on analysis of an Essex Rape and Sexual Abuse Partnership administrative dataset shared with the Office of the Victims’ Commissioner for England and Wales.
