Contact Us

Before spending time submitting your communication please ensure that the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions (CDPP) is the correct agency for you to contact.

If your communication relates to a matter conducted by a State or Territory DPP, please refer to the website of that State or Territory Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) for instructions on how to submit your enquiry to them. The Commonwealth DPP cannot assist with feedback or complaints relating to matters conducted by other DPPs.

If your communication relates to an alleged crime which has not been investigated, or investigated and not referred to the CDPP, you should contact the relevant investigative agency e.g. police.  The CDPP prosecutes matters following investigation and referral of briefs of evidence from investigative agencies.  We are unable to assist with matters which have not been investigated, have been investigated and not referred to the CDPP or are in the process of being investigated.

The CDPP welcomes enquiries, feedback and other interactions with members of the public. Please ensure those interactions are respectful. 

It is a criminal offence to use the phone or email to communicate in a way that a reasonable person would regard as being menacing, harassing or offensive. Should the CDPP receive such communications, it may choose not to respond and may refer the matter to the appropriate authorities for investigation.
