HM Inspectorate of Constabulary for Scotland: Annual Report (2007/08)


Appendix 1: Statistical Information

In previous years I included a number of statistical tables in my annual report. Following a review of our format, we have decided not to replicate statistical information that is available elsewhere. Instead we provide web addresses to guide readers to where these have been made available electronically.

1. HMICS Scottish police service statistics from 2007-08 on staffing, community information, drugs, firearms and 999 calls

Each year we collate a large amount of statistical information from the eight Scottish forces through our annual statistical returns. We make this data available on-line and interested readers can follow this link to the relevant web page:


2. Public performance reports of the Scottish forces

Each year the eight Scottish forces publish a comprehensive breakdown of how they have performed over the year ending 31 March. In addition, the Scottish Police Services Authority has produced information on the performance of the services that it provides. This information is available to the public from the relevant force web pages:

Central Scotland Police

Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary

Fife Constabulary

Grampian Police

Lothian and Borders Police

Northern Constabulary

Strathclyde Police

Tayside Police

Scottish Police Services Authority

3. Statement of police grant earning expenditure and income for financial year ended 31 March 2008

The Scottish Government Police and Community Safety Directorate collates financial information relating to police grant earning expenditure and income for the Scottish police service.
