The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) provides an electronic copy of the Police National Computer (PNC) details for defendants to the court and defence as part of their initial disclosure of the prosecution case. Any subsequent updated versions of the defendant’s PNC received during the course of the case are provided to the CPS by the police, either at their instigation or at the request of the CPS, for use at court.
