Guidance literature

The Public Prosecution Service (PPS) is committed to the highest possible standards of openness and accountability in the delivery of its services. Despite this, concerns about impropriety or malpractice may still arise.  
 
The purpose of this updated guidance is to:  
 
a. reassure staff that they can raise genuine allegations or concerns about potential wrongdoing in confidence, through a clear internal reporting process, without putting their position at risk; and  
 
b.  encourage members of the public who may have concerns of this nature to report them to the PPS at an early stage.
