From today many more criminals will be made to pay towards supporting victims of crime. Currently offenders only contribute around one sixth of the funding that supports victims’ services. Hard-working taxpayers provide the rest.

In a massive overhaul to the way services for victims and witnesses of crime are funded, the 'Victim Surcharge' is being increased and extended to apply to a far wider range of sentences.

 

Extending the 'Victim Surcharge' is the next step in the Government's drive to see offenders provide up to £50 million more each year for victims services. This is on top of the £66 million already given by central Government.

I also can't understand why they don't make a one off charge for drunks being taken to hospital or even for an ambulance being called out to them. There should also be a compulsory charge for being taken to the cells for the night.

 

Make the baduns pay not the gooduns.

Here the Police do seek a charge if an offender is kept overnight and put in Court next day.
