During this period, minor motoring cases have fallen by 67% in the Area with a similar fall reflected across England.

star this property answer text <p>Her Majesty’s Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate (HMCPSI) inspects the work of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and reports to the Law Officers. The Code for Crown Prosecutors (the Code) provides that it is the duty of prosecutors to make sure that the right person is prosecuted for the right offence. Between 2016 and 2018 HMCPSI inspected 12 of the 14 CPS Areas in England and Wales and found that in a very high proportion of cases the CPS correctly applied the Code and that the charges proceeded with were the correct ones. HMCPSI reported that in over 94.5% of the cases they inspected the decision to charge complied with the Code; that measure relates to all the provisions of the Code and not only whether any offence charged was the correct one.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>HMCPSI provide reports to the Law Officers and the public on the work of the CPS and that includes analysis of charging decisions made by the CPS with reference to the Code for Crown Prosecutors. HMCPSI reports and CPS performance information do not provide data on the expectations of the police or victims as to charging decisions and any difference between those expectations and the charging decision made by the CPS.</p><p> </p><p>If the police wish to query or challenge a CPS charging decision, that can be done through a formal escalation procedure. If a victim wishes to query or challenge a CPS charging decision that can be done through the Victim’s Right to Review Scheme, the Victim Communication and Liaison Scheme and the CPS Feedback and Complaints Scheme.</p> more like this
