Public Prosecution Service for Northern Ireland | Independent, Fair, Effective

About the Public Prosecution Service

The Public Prosecution Service (PPS) is the principal prosecuting authority in Northern Ireland, with responsibility for taking decisions as to prosecution in all cases investigated by the police. We also consider cases initiated or investigated by other statutory authorities, such as HM Revenue and Customs. We act impartially and in the interests of justice at all times, applying the highest professional standards and treating everyone fairly and with respect. We are at the heart of the criminal justice system and work with partners to build a safer community in which we respect the law and each other.
