CPS West Midlands - About Us

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is the main prosecuting authority in England and Wales. In our daily operations we work in partnership with all the agencies in the criminal justice system. We work especially closely with the police, although we are independent of them.

Headed by the Director of Public Prosecutions, Alison Saunders, the CPS is the largest 'law firm' in the UK.

The CPS has 13 Areas across England and Wales, each headed by a Chief Crown Prosecutor (CCP). The West Midlands Area, which consists of the counties of Warwickshire, Shropshire, Hereford and Worcester, Staffordshire and the metropolitan area of West Midlands, which includes the cities of Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Coventry, is headed up by CCP Grace Ononiwu OBE. She is supported by Deputy CCPs Lionel Idan and Suzanne Llewellyn, and by our Temporary Area Business Manager Tristan Bradshaw.

West Midlands CPS also handles all the prosecution cases which come out of British Transport Police (BTP) investigations in England and Wales.

The Area has also established a Complex Casework Unit based at our Birmingham office who work with the local police forces of West Midlands, Warwickshire, Staffordshire, West Mercia and BTP to tackle organised and serious cross border crime.

Together we employ 467 members of staff, which consists of lawyers, paralegal officers and administrators, who serve a population of over five million people.

West Midlands CPS is supported by the Business Centre which houses a team of specialists in the fields of performance, finance, human resources, communications and equality and diversity. They provide advice and guidance to all members of staff within the Area as well as staff from local and government agencies and the general public.

We are committed to placing victims and witnesses at the heart of the justice system in the West Midlands and ensuring that we deal with them in a professional and courteous manner and help them through a process which, for many, can be a difficult time.

Equally, the Area is committed to ensuring that we are renowned for our professionalism and delivering justice to all members of our communities. If we succeed in this, communities will have confidence in their local justice system, having faith in the fact that their interests are represented and justice is seen to be done.
