Public Accountability and Inclusion

Equality and diversity for the CPS is fundamental to delivering fair prosecutions, achieving equitable employment practice and building the confidence of our communities.

Our goal is to be a prosecution service that performs its role fairly and transparently, addresses barriers and disproportionality effectively and works with stakeholders and the public to improve our practice to achieve high quality prosecutions, a better working environment and deliver better justice for all.

We work within the framework of the public sector duties of the Equality Act 2010 to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations between diverse groups. Equality and diversity is embedded in both our prosecutions and employment practices and our planning and decision making.

Our Equality and Diversity Information which demonstrates compliance with the Specific Duties of the Equality Act is available in the Publications section of this website.
