2 LORD ADVOCATE'S ADVISORY GROUP
The Lord Advocate's Advisory Group (established in 2006) consists of a number of ex officio members, invited members and two lay members recruited by public advertisement.
Its primary function is to provide advice on the work programme of the Inspectorate and to keep under review the working relationship between the Inspectorate and the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service.
The Group meets every 4 months.
The Group will continue to have as an invited member the head of another criminal prosecution service (currently the English Director of Public Prosecutions) which provides a useful external perspective for the Inspectorate.
The Group as a whole continues to provide invaluable advice on the work programme of the Inspectorate.
