Prosecution and case management

Prosecution and case management provides an introduction to the way the police service works with partners in the criminal justice system (CJS). The experience of victims, witnesses and the public is a fundamental to bringing offenders to justice.

This area of APP is broken into five modules:

  • charging and case preparation
  • hearing and trial management
  • possible justice outcomes following investigation
  • enforcing sentences and managing offenders
  • victim and witness care.

Core guidance is provided alongside links to mutually agreed supporting guidance held and managed by other agencies, which guides, influences or directs policing in the CJS.
