police to respond to an assault that was reported a day after it had happened. Will it drag on for months or be dealt with swiftly, let me guess that all depends on how quickly the evidence is compiled? It happened at a supermarket, at the checkouts and there were alot of witnesses.

what do you mean respond? You called them and are waiting for them to arrive? Probably same/next day

Well what I meant was, after reporting it, whats their next steps? How do they go about it?

in my case it was 6 weeks from when I gave my statement to when they went round and took it further.

Assuming they can be bothered to investigate, they will probably start by getting the cctv footage, watch it and see if they can identify the person then take it from there.

So if I gave them the statement yesterday, would they be on the job today, or would they start with my case a week later for example?

4 weeks for me
