Appointments to new Prosecution Networks

Three senior procurators fiscal have been appointed to lead new prosecution ‘networks’ covering local Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) offices across Scotland.

The three ‘networks’ structure (North; East; and West) has replaced the COPFS previous 11 ‘area’ structure. The appointment of the new senior procurators fiscal: John Dunn (West); David Harvie (North); and John Logue (East), was announced this week by the Lord Advocate, Frank Mulholland QC.

The restructuring will allow the COPFS to use its technology to the full, with teams of staff from around Scotland working together to make the best use of resources and provide a more efficient and effective service to the public.

The move builds on the approach already taken at a national level where specialist prosecutors are already embedded in areas of work such as Sexual Crime; Serious and Organised Crime; Health and Safety, and have delivered significant results.

“This structure means we can deal more effectively with the inevitable peaks and troughs experienced in our different types of caseload, making fuller use of our IT systems and technology and expert staff," said Solicitor General for Scotland, Lesley Thomson QC.
