Working with you

As a public service, we believe it is vital we increase public knowledge and confidence about the CPS in the South East and establish and develop positive and strong relationships with our communities.

We always welcome comments and feedback from you about our service so we can improve what we do for the public. If you have a compliment, complaint or comment to make, please email

We work within the framework of the public sector duties of the Equality Act 2010 to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations between diverse groups. Equality and diversity is embedded in our prosecutions and employment practices, planning and decision making.

For us, equality and diversity is fundamental to delivering fair prosecutions, achieving equitable employment practice and building the confidence of our communities.

There are a number of ways we involve voluntary groups, statutory partners and individuals in the development of our service:

  • through joint working with other organisations who are part of the criminal justice system;
  • through CPS South East's Local Scrutiny Involvement Panel;
  • by working directly with the community and attending community meetings; and
  • by offering training to support groups

We welcome invitations to meet with community groups and are happy to provide further information about our service.
