Crime and justice statistics

Publications, general information and guidance relating to the Scottish Government's crime and justice statistics.


Within the Justice Analytical Services Division, statisticians work within two policy-focused, multi-disciplinary analytical teams which include social researchers, economists and performance analysts. The teams provide statistical information and support relating to police and community safety, court affairs and offenders, prisons and matters relating to civil and international law.

Criminal court disposals dashboard

We have launched an interactive dashboard providing information on disposals issued at charge level in Scottish criminal courts. The dashboard allows users to investigate trends in court disposals (at charge level) from April 2017, over a wide range of options. It will be updated quarterterly.
