Other inspectorate activity
Launch of IPS website
63. In March 2023, we launched a new website at www.prosecutioninspectorate.scot. Previously, our reports were published on the Scottish Government's website. Our new, standalone website reinforces our status as an independent inspectorate, allows us to collate all our content in one accessible place, gives us greater control over our content and allows us an opportunity to communicate more effectively with our audience. The website was launched to positive feedback from stakeholders, however we will keep working to make the website as easy to use and as accessible as possible.
64. The creation of the website helps take forward one of our key strategic objectives for 2022-25 – to increase awareness of and engagement and confidence in our inspection activity. Since the website's launch, there has been a noticeable increase in interest and engagement in our scrutiny activity from stakeholders and the general public, which we welcome.
