  • Crime can affect people in many different ways because its not always about the person who committed the crime. The families of people affected also get affected in many different ways because the family of the person who commits the crime are effected because they can no longer see them apart from once a week and it can put a bad name to their family.

  • -The Victim-
    The victim could be effected mentally and physically. They could be effected physically because of effects of injury through violent crime. Also, their job could be inconveniently because they may have to take a lot of time off work. They may feel nervous because they may be called to court as a witness. Psychological effects such as anger, depression or fear, which, in serious cases, can cause sleeplessness, flashbacks to the offence or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). They may not go to where the crime happened, and it may have been important to them before the crime happened. People react very differently to similar offences and where one person may be seriously affected, another might experience only minor or short-term effects. If the crime was a robbery or burglary, the victim may or may not have financial issues depending on what was stolen. Crime surveys such as the Crime Survey for England and Wales administered in 2013/14 (previously known as the British Crime Survey) and the International Crime Victim Survey (ICVS) which was last carried out in 2004/05, provide interesting insights into the effects of victimisation. However, this survey was not taken tn 2018-2019.

    -The Criminal-
    After the crime has taken place the criminal may feel guilty, especially if it's their first crime and if they are young. Furthermore, if the youth criminal was in a gang, and they're thinking of leaving the gang they may fell scared and pressured towards staying in the gang.
