Freedom of information

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) gives you rights to access official information held by the CPS. You can ask for any information you think a public authority may hold. Some information may not be given to you because it is exempt, for example because it would unfairly reveal personal details about somebody else.

Under the Data Protection Act (DPA) you have the right to get a copy of the information that is held about you by the Crown Prosecution Service. This is known as a subject access request.

FOIA requests

All requests for information held by the CPS under the DPA or FOIA are managed by the Information Management Unit.

Requests may be made by email FOI.Unit@cps.gov.uk or in writing to:

Information Management Unit
Rose Court
2 Southwark Street
London SE1 9HS

In line with our statutory obligations, the IMU will respond to all FOIA requests for information within 20 working days and DPA request within 40 days. We publish a cross section of answers to previous FOIA requests.
