A WELCOME change to legal proceedings in Mount Gambier is expected to improve court efficiency in the region with the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP) taking on a larger responsibility from the South Australian Police.

The reform will see major indictable offences transferred to the ODPP immediately after the first court appearance, allowing more time for the office
