The King's Loyal Prosecuting Service (KLPS, also commonly known as the Prosecuting Service) is the Kingdom of Washingtonia's government agency charged with criminal prosecutions. It is led by the Prosecutor General, the generally-regarded second highest authority (after the Attorney General) in the Ministry of Justice, currently Laura Tolbert, the first female to occupy that office. The Prosecuting Service was established by the Criminal Prosecutions Act of 1932, which was enacted on 9 May 1932 (the first office was opened two days later).
A prosecuting office is located at each geographic Provincial Court, led by a Head Prosecutor. Lead Prosecutors deal chiefly with more severe crimes, while Senior and Junior Prosecutors (both simply known as Prosecutors) deal with less severe crimes. The KLPS has over 600 employees, of which 150 are prosecutors.
