This workstream and the research carried out will explore and provide greater understanding of the way that prosecutors enact the Prosecutor's Code and supporting guidance when determining whether to charge a suspect, and in particular the extent to which this facilitates consistency in decision making. There is a need to explore the way in which prosecutors apply the Code and associated guidance, with a view to ensuring that that CPS has taken all reasonable steps to reduce disproportionality in decision making and is addressing its Public Sector Equality Duty.
