How to access information

HMCPSI has a statutory duty to inspect the operation of the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and the Serious Fraud Office (SFO).

The purpose of inspection is to drive improvements and build public confidence in the prosecution process. It does this by providing independently assessed evidence, which:

  • Allows others to hold the CPS and SFO to account
  • Informs debate over their performance

While we may make recommendations in our reports, we are not a regulator, and do not have any power to enforce compliance.
