What we do
The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) is a critical participant in the administration of justice within Western Australia, providing an independent and effective criminal prosecution service which is both just and fair.
The ODPP acts independently of the Government in decision making on criminal prosecutions. The Director is however responsible to the Attorney General for the operation of the Office.
The ODPP does not investigate crime - that is the role of investigating agencies such as the WA Police and the Corruption and Crime Commission.
A separate body - the Commonwealth ODPP - prosecutes offences committed against Commonwealth criminal laws.
Attending a meeting at the ODPP in the near future?
If you have a cough, fever, or shortness of breath, or if you may have been exposed to COVID-19, please contact the ODPP staff member you are meeting with immediately so arrangements can be made.
If you don’t have their contact details, email email@example.com or phone (08) 9425 3999.
Thank you for helping us protect the health of our visitors and staff.
