What information does the suspect know?

In most cases, law enforcement will not contact the suspect until after victim notification has occurred. At the time of notification, law enforcement and advocacy should ask the victim if they wish to re-engage with the process. If the victim decides to re-engage, the suspect may be contacted to proceed with the investigation. The victim can utilize advocacy and law enforcement services to safety-plan prior to the offender being notified.
