CPS North East
CPS North East is headed by Chief Crown Prosecutor (CCP) Gerry Wareham. Every year, we prosecute thousands of criminal cases through the Magistrates' and Crown Courts situated across the region. We also have specialists whose job it is to pursue the proceeds of crime, ensuring that we claw back the money that criminals make through their illegal activities.
Within our Witness Care Units, CPS staff work extremely closely with the police and Victim Support to provide information, support, and advice to victims and witnesses. The work they do is often the key to achieving a successful conviction.
