Prosecutors Pay to attend court (R016382) July

Thank you for your e-mail of 21 June 2017 in which you request information relating to the payment of prosecutors.

You have requested information on what a prosecutor gets paid to attend court. I can advise that prosecutors are paid on a salaried basis which is not linked to their appearance in court.

The pay scale for each grade of staff within the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) is published on our website. This information can be found here:

To assist you in understanding this information, I can advise that the trainee, PFD, SPFD, PD, G, SCS 1, 1A and 2 represent the grades for prosecutors, depending on their level of seniority, within COPFS.
