Crown Prosecution Service London

Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), prosecutes the criminal cases investigated by Police of England and Wales. The idea is to bring criminals or delinquents to justice and thus ensure a peaceful and civilized society. Prior to the formation of CPS, the Police department used to prosecute the criminals. In 1981 it was recommended by a Royal Commission that an independent prosecution be established so as to avoid same officers prosecuting the case who have investigated the crime.  The recommendation thus gave way to The Prosecution of Offences Act 1985, which established the CPS under the direction of the Director of Public Prosecutions.
