Criminal Justice Inspection has made public the findings of its first inspection of the Public Prosecution Service for Northern Ireland (PPS). The report
found that based on the extensive file sample examined by us the PPS was independent in its decision making, but it could do more to publicly reassure the community of this. The report contains a number of recommendations and issues to address which Inspectors believe will further enhance the Service. The inspection was carried out by Her Majesty’s Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate (HMCPSI) under the delegated authority of Kit Chivers, Chief Inspector of Criminal Justice in Northern Ireland. Copies of the report can be downloaded from this website.
