CPS celebrates February's 'Successes of the Month'

PUBLISHED February 20, 2012

The CPS is celebrating the outstanding work of teams and individuals up and down the country by publishing their stories on the CPS website. In our 'Successes of the Month', we congratulate those colleagues who have gone beyond the call of duty or who have made a real contribution to their communities by working hard to see justice done. This month, a CPS London prosecutor received an award at the House of Commons for his work in partnership with charity The Trust Women?s Project on diverting women working as prostitutes away from the criminal justice system to prevent reoffending; an advocate from CPS West Midlands was praised by a judge as 'a credit to the legal profession' for his fairness in assisting a defendant representing himself at an appeal against a driving disqualification; a policy advisor at CPS HQ is recognised for his behind the scenes work on the new Advocacy Panel scheme and a manager at CPS Yorkshire and Humberside has gone the extra mile with her contribution to moving the criminal justice system into the digital age.
