The Attorney Generals' Office, Treasury Solicitors and HM Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate have no recorded instances of any member of staff being convicted of a criminal offence during this period.
In respect of the Serious Fraud Office and the National Fraud Authority there have been fewer than five prosecutions or convictions of staff in any one year. Therefore this information is withheld on grounds of confidentiality.
The National Fraud Authority is unable to disclose this information for reasons of confidentiality. This applies to the period since the Agency's launch in 2008 to present.
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has maintained a central record of staff convicted of more significant criminal offences from the year 2000. The CPS does not maintain centralised records of staff convicted of minor criminal acts and would incur disproportionate cost in retrieving this information.
Due to the very small number of staff convicted for more serious offences for each year, the CPS is not prepared to disclose the specific details on grounds of confidentiality. The following table provides information on the number of more serious convictions of CPS staff between 2000 and 2009:
Number 2000 1 2001 4 2002 3 2003 3 2004 1 2005 3 2006 3 2007 2 2008 4 2009 1
Revenue and Customs Prosecution Office (RCPO) became an independent Prosecutions Office on 18 April 2005 and was merged with the Crown Prosecution Service on 1 January 2010. There are no records of any former RCPO employees having been convicted of a criminal offence.
