Community Outreach

Community Outreach is the process by which the PPS and the people of Northern Ireland will interact and the way in which the PPS will engage at a local level with the community and relevant statutory and non-statutory agencies.

The aim of this Community Outreach Strategy is to:

"Increase public confidence in the independence, fairness and effectiveness of the new Public Prosecution Service for Northern Ireland."

The objectives of the Public Prosecution Service's Community Outreach Strategy are to:

Increase the community's understanding of the role of the PPS as part of the overall criminal justice system and to help inform the community generally about criminal justice processes;

Provide information about the working of the PPS, for example, what criteria are used to make decisions; and

Assist with developing the community's understanding of diversionary schemes as an alternative to prosecution.
