  1. Tell me something editor. is it still the police that charge individuals of crimes or is the the Office of the DPP. I thought everything was taken out of the hands of the police. They are only to investigate the crime. Perhaps I am wrong. Just asking

    • Charges can be brought by any individual or entity. If the police bring a charge, the charge is made in the name of the Commissioner of Police. If it is done by the DPP, it is done in the name of the Director of Public Prosecutions. If the charge is made by a private person, it is done in his or her name.
