A witness cannot drop charges. It doens't work like that in the UK.
What type of case is this?
She's not going to drop charges then.
Dropping charges is a myth. Witnesses can do two things to avoid a prosecution. The first is to say they've lied. If they do that they can be charged with perverting the course of justice and she is not going to do that. the second is to say they don't want to go to court. That doesn't always work and anyway, a police officer is not going to do that.
It might be that CPS will not charge it but I wouldn't rely on it in the current climate. That doesn't mean you'll be convicted though.
If they are taking no further then sometimes they will tell you there is no need to attend on the bail date.
