Get involved

CPS East Midlands welcomes feedback about the service we provide. It is an important part of helping us improve what we do and how we do it.

We reach out to our public in a variety of ways:

  • By attending local mettings in the community
  • By working directly with local communities
  • Through joint working with other organisations who work in the criminal justice system
  • Through formal public panels which we organise ourselves

We run three formal public engagment panels where members of the public give us their views and ideas as to how we can do things better. The panels also give us the opportunity to explain the work we do to representatives of our local communities.

Find out more about our public panels.

Reaching out to our community

Picture of two people talking to represent conversation with the communityCPS East Midlands is committed to listening to members of the public and involving people in the community in improving the way we work. Where possible we try to help local people understand how the criminal justice system works and how we come to our decisions.

We provide a service to members of the public in the East Midlands, so the community is at the very heart of what we do. We work with local and regional people and groups to make sure that the service we provide is based on the needs of people in the community, especially people who have particular needs or whose views are not always heard.

We are fortunate to have support from members of the public and community and voluntary sector groups to help us look back on cases. We use their expertise and grass roots knowledge to help us learn how we can support people better and prosecute cases more effectively.

We have a community engagement strategy and action plan that outlines how we make this happen. Read the strategy here
