CPS Whistleblowing Policy
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is committed to ensuring high standards of conduct in all that it does. For civil servants, these standards are reinforced by the Civil Service Code and the departmental Code of Conduct. However, wrongdoing can occur. It is important that employees know what to do if, in the course of their work, they come across something that they think is fundamentally wrong, illegal or endangers others within the department or the public. The Policy, Procedures and Frequently Asked Questions will guide employees through the process of raising a concern, which is sometimes referred to as 'blowing the whistle'.
