The Lord Advocate is required, along with the Chief Constable of Police Scotland, the Scottish Courts and Tribunal Service, the Scottish Prison Service and the Parole Board for Scotland, to publish Standards of Service for victims and witnesses each year and to publish an annual report in relation to the fulfilment of those standards.
COPFS will continue to fulfil the same standards of service in 2020-21
Solicitor General Alison Di Rollo QC said:
“On behalf of the Lord Advocate I welcome the publication of the Standards of Service for Victims and Witnesses report.
“The Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service is committed to improving the experiences of victims and witnesses within the criminal justice system.
“All staff have worked hard this year to ensure that we fulfil the commitments made in our standards of service and we will continue to do so in the year to come."
