The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) maintains no central records of the number of local authorities that have adopted the national 2013 Protocol. However, in a recent survey of Chief Crown Prosecutors, the CPS found that, following the publication of the national multi-agency 2013 protocol, 82 of the 174 Local Authorities responsible for children’s services have so far signed local disclosure protocols.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has a comprehensive cost reduction strategy to 2015-16 that is fully aligned to, and supports, CPS priorities and objectives. The strategy will ensure that the department meets the SR2013 savings targets.</p><p>In their annual report for 2013-14 the Inspectorate acknowledged that CPS had improved its performance on serious and complex cases and also highlighted CPS success in hate crime cases and those involving violence against women and girls. The report was largely based on cases completed more than a year ago and more recent data shows performance improvements across the board since then. For example, magistrates' courts are seeing more guilty pleas and fewer cases dropped while the Crown Courts are showing increasing conviction rates – now at 81% across England and Wales. The challenges mentioned in the report are being addressed but they should be seen in the context of an improving prosecution service across the country.</p><p> </p> more like this
