Her Majesty’s Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate (HMCPSI) published a report on CPS West Midlands on 12 October 2021.

The report found that the Area added significant value and excelled in making good prosecutorial decisions. In addition, the report found that the Area’s RASSO casework was particularly strong, and its handling of victim and witness care issues was also praised by inspectors.

However, there were some aspects of performance that require improvement, such as the quality of case strategy at both the pre and post charge stages.

HMCPSI will conduct a follow-up inspection of CPS West Midlands next year to assess whether improvements have been made.
