A specially trained crime-scene investigator will usually do this.If you have been injured the police may want to photograph your injuries or have your injuries examined by a doctor engaged by the police.If you agree to an examination the doctor will record any injuries.You do not have to consent to a medical examination, but it can provide vital evidence which the police may not be able to get from anywhere else, and it may help identify who was responsible for the attack.
In this case, you will be asked to pick out the person who you think committed the alleged offence.
If you are a victim of crime and contact the police the investigating officer should give you their contact details as well as the leaflet, ' Information for victims of crime'.
You should also receive a letter with more detail about the investigation (unless you have asked not to be contacted).
The police may need to get advice and guidance from the Public Prosecution Service (PPS) to help in the investigation.
This will usually be to do with the type of evidence needed or whether evidence will be used in court.
