Introduction

Introduction

The statistics presented in this bulletin are derived from the data used in the Criminal Proceedings in Scotland statistical bulletin. The Criminal Proceedings data are in turn derived from information held on the Criminal History System (CHS) which is maintained by Police Scotland.

Changes made to this year’s report

The changes made to this year’s report are as follows:

  • A new table showing reconvictions following an index conviction with the statutory domestic abuse aggravation. The new statutory domestic abuse aggravation was created by the Abusive Behaviour and Sexual Harm (Scotland) Act 2016 and came into effect on the 24th April 2017 for crimes and offences committed on or after this date.
