Anonyomous Securing of Evidence
Victims of, e.g. domestic or sexual violence who, for various reasons, do not want to report the perpetrator or pursue criminal proceedings, can have evidence of this violence secured anonymously in a timely manner. This is of importance in proceedings with conflicting statements by two parties as these are often adjourned. Having evidence such as photographs or a legally secure medical documentation of the injuries can prevent this. Thus, anonymous securing of evidence offers the victims ample time to think about whether or not they want to pursue criminal proceedings.
Anonymous securing of evidence is possible in certain clinics and hospitals and so-called outpatient clinics for the protection against violence. Please note however, that the nationwide coverage of said clinics is limited and that coverage varies from state to state.
