A High Quality Prosecution Service

Deliver a high quality prosecution service that brings offenders to justice, helps reduce both crime and the fear of crime and thereby promote public confidence in the rule of law through the consistent, fair and independent review of cases and through their fair, thorough and firm presentation at court.

Schools and young people

The Crown Prosecution Services National Schools Project was first developed in 2007 by staff at CPS Derbyshire for their local schools in conjunction with Derbyshire County Council. Based on the National Citizenship Curriculum the pioneering lesson package teaches young people between the ages of 11 and 16 about the criminal justice system.
