Shrugging off crime has become a worryingly familiar trait among British police these days. They blame everything from lack of evidence, cuts, resources and the Crown Prosecution Service. Meanwhile, fraud has become so prevalent it is now the biggest category of crime; and yet the police routinely refuse to such much as record it, let alone investigate it.
As the police seem to have the monopoly on law and order, who do you turn to when they do nothing?…
Well, what you probably don’t know is that neither the police nor the public authorities have the exclusive right to prosecute. We all have the right to investigate, charge and prosecute any suspect we believe to have committed an offence, no matter how petty or serious the crime.
Your right to bring an offender to justice is known as private prosecution. You don’t need the permission of the police or the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS). Not even the Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP). The police cannot obstruct you, nor command you to stop. You don’t need to be the victim of the offence. You don’t even need to have witnessed it. If you have evidence that somebody has committed a crime, you know their name and their whereabouts, then you have a right to bring them to magistrates’ court to answer charges. You even have the right to put criminally behaving police officers on trial when the police complaints process refuses to reprimand them.
More and more people are using their statutory right to prosecute – to bring offenders to justice – when the police, quite simply, can’t be bothered.
If you have been the victim of theft, burglary, harassment, threats to kill, fraud, common assault or any other criminal offence, and you are willing to gather evidence and identify the offender, then private prosecution is the surest way of obtaining justice. The courts will even reimburse you out of public funds for having performed a civic duty that you could once rely upon the police to fulfil.
I have written a downloadable E-document that explains the step-by-step process of bringing a private prosecution. It takes little more than 30 minutes to read, and yet the information it contains could empower you to take over the reigns of law enforcement when the police sit idly by.
This E-Doc explains the full process of how to bring criminals to court and have them punished, or even sent to jail, including:
- How to charge somebody with a criminal offence
- How to write up your own charge sheet and submit it to the court
- How to summons somebody before the Magistrates’ court
- How to ensure your prosecution makes it across the finish line
- Little known free and low cost on-line legal resources (that could potentially save you thousands of pounds)
