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.
