Crime Prevention
Being a Good Witness



Court and the Legal Process

A good witness is someone who remembers the details, such as the height, weight, hair color and style, and clothing of a suspect. If a vehicle was involved, a good witness would remember a license plate, color, make, model, and any other identifying marks. A good witness would probably consider carrying a pen and paper with them to write these things down as they happen or immediately after. The longer you wait to write information down the more you forget. 

But, most importantly, we would never want to see a witness hurt, so please don't try to get involved if a crime occurs…just be a good witness by calling 911 and writing down everything you see and hear as soon as possible.
