Outcomes from the panels

The CPS East Midlands public panels do a really important job in helping us identify where we could provide a better service, either to all victims and witnesses or to specific groups of people.

The feedback and recommendations provided by the panels is taken on board by CPS East Midlands and can have a positive impact on the service we provide. To help you understand what the panels do and how they help us improve our service, we provide an update, which details the latest set of recommendations.

Public engagement panels

This feedbackis then used to improve the work we do. This could be, for example, the way the prosecution process impacts on a particular group of people or community.
