CPS leaders welcome final findings of academic report into prosecutions of rape

12/03/2024

 

The CPS invited an independent academic team from the University of Warwick to evaluate the design and impact of activities piloted under Operation Soteria – the work to overhaul the prosecution and handling of rape and serious sexual offence (RASSO) cases.

 

The interim findings, delivered by Professor Vanessa Munro to the CPS in April 2023, have been vital in informing and strengthening the CPS national operating model for the prosecution of adult rape, rolled out nationally in July 2023.

 

The final report, published today, concludes that the new operating model, now rolled out to all CPS Areas, builds effectively on many of the key insights of Operation Soteria initiatives and makes commendable commitments to ensuring they are part of a consistent national approach.
