The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not hold any central data on the number of requests for private prosecutions to be taken over by the CPS prior to February 2011. Since this date, CPS areas have been required to notify any such requests to the Director of Public Prosecutions' (DPP) Principal Legal Advisor (PLA). The PLA has to date received no notifications that the CPS has taken over any prosecutions brought by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB).
