New Code

Thanks to Crime Line for pointing us to the new Code for Crown Prosecutors. It's important to be able to understand the CPS' reasoning processes.


  1. Well lets hope it has some effect on some of the more mindless and hopeless prosecutions one sees from time to time.

  2. Sorry, but what actual change does this represent ?

  3. I would say 'proportionality' is quite a big change.

  4. "proportionality ...... intended to avoid bringing into the system cases in which criminality could be better addressed by other, more appropriate means."

    Fine, but how on earth are these 'other more appropriate means' to be enforced without a conviction?


Posts are pre-moderated. Please bear with us if this takes a little time, but the number of bores and obsessives was getting out of hand, as were the fake comments advertising rubbish.
