These are offences that are prosecuted by the police rather than the CPS in order to reduce unnecessary bureaucracy and ensure swifter justice.

A single defendant may be prosecuted for multiple offences.</p><p>The number of offences charged under s.51(1) and s.51(2) are as follows:</p><br /><table><tbody><tr><td><p><br></p></td><td><p><br></p></td><td><p>2010-2011</p></td><td><p>2011-2012</p></td><td><p>2012-2013</p></td><td><p>2013-2014</p></td><td><p>2014-2015</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 51(1)</p></td><td><p>Intimidate a witness / juror</p></td><td><p>3,275</p></td><td><p>2,630</p></td><td><p>2,148</p></td><td><p>2,066</p></td><td><p>2,202</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 51(2)</p></td><td><p>Do an act which harmed a witness / juror</p></td><td><p>102</p></td><td><p>166</p></td><td><p>99</p></td><td><p>72</p></td><td><p>109</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 51(2)</p></td><td><p>Threaten a witness / juror</p></td><td><p>240</p></td><td><p>172</p></td><td><p>118</p></td><td><p>122</p></td><td><p>129</p></td></tr></tbody></table><br /><p>The proportion of CPS cases that result in a guilty plea has increased from 67.2% in 10/11 to 74.5% in 14/15 which means that there are fewer cases that are likely to be subject to the sorts of acts covered by s.51(1) during the course of the prosecution.</p><p>Also, s.51(1) covers intimidation of juror or potential jurors. The number of crown court trials have also been reducing over the period in question by 9.5%, again resulting in fewer cases where S.51(1) offences are likely to apply.</p>

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has not spent anything on refurbishment of gymnasiums, leisure facilities or cafeterias in 2013 or 2014. The CPS spent £149,780 in financial year 2013/4 on interior decoration on a mix of refurbishment and other works on premises on its estate. Nothing has been spent in the current financial year to date. The CPS did not spend anything on interior decoration on buildings that it owns in either period.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Serious Fraud Office (SFO) rents office space in a 1930s building in Cockspur Street. Its office has no gymnasium, leisure facilities or cafeteria. The SFO moved to this office in 2012/13 after it was refurbished to meet its needs. Any interior decoration was incidental to the overall refurbishment project. The SFO does not hold information on the proportion of refurbishment costs attributable to interior decoration.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In 2013/14, the SFO took over an additional floor in the building containing its office in order to be able to accommodate staff dealing with some of its newly-opened major investigations. That floor, too, required refurbishment. Again, the SFO does not hold information on the proportion of the refurbishment costs attributable to interior decoration, but can indicate that the cost of painting existing walls amounted to £9k plus VAT. Nothing has been spent on interior decoration in 2014/15 to date.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The Treasury Solicitor’s department (TSol) did not incur any expenditure on gymnasium or leisure facilities at its offices during the past two years</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The floor in the main cafeteria within its main at One Kemble Street was replaced in April 2014 for health and safety reasons, at a cost of £42,282.55 (inclusive of VAT). No other refurbishment works have taken place in 2013 and 2014 within the cafeterias.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Interior decorations undertaken within the three buildings leased by TSol are included in the annual service charge payable to the relevant landlord. In the One Kemble Street office, itemised works specific to TSol totalled £187 in 2013 and £0.00 to date in 2014. No interior decorative works have taken place in Croydon or Taunton.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The HM Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate are tenants of TSol and based at the One Kemble Street building. They have not incurred any separate expenditure during the past two years.</p><p> </p><p>The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) is based in one building in Victoria Street, which is leased. There has been no expenditure on gymnasium and leisure activities or on a cafeteria in 2013 or 2014 to date.
