Complaints, Feedback and Suggestions
The ODPP aims to be accessible and responsive to victims of crime, witnesses and our other stakeholders in the prosecution process. As an organisation we strive to deliver a quality service and continuously improve by constructively using the feedback we receive.
We expect to receive feedback, compliments and complaints about our work. We want to know what we have done wrong, what we could do better and where we have exceeded expectations, to help us improve the way victims and witnesses are treated.
