The Criminal Justice System

At the CPS we play a key role in the criminal justice system. It's our job to prosecute criminal cases - making sure we prosecute the right person for the right offence. These explainers illustrate our role, how we make our decisions and how we work in partnership with organisations across the criminal justice system.
