Welcome to our new websiteThe Punjab Criminal Prosecution Service Inspectorate inspects the work of the CPS and its subordinate offices. Inspection results are shared with inspected units, the Prosecutor General and the Government. The purpose of inspections is not naming prosecutors who have not acted in accordance with relevant standards but to ensure excellence in prosecutorial working.
Who we are
A robust and efficient prosecution agency is a key guarantor of public safety and justice. Prosecutors are the first and one of the most important filters in the criminal process. It is their duty to ensure that only those persons are prosecuted against whom there is sufficient evidence.
The PCPSI ensures that prosecutors perform this duty to the highest possible standard and ensure fair trial in all cases. Fair trial requirements include: disclosure, equality of arms, competent and impartial tribunals, fair and competent prosecutors. The PCPSI is a key part of the prosecution department and is staffed by both lay persons and professional prosecutors on secondment from the CPS.
