Reports received by COPFS
After a crime is classified and a suspect charged, police send a report to the Crown Office Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS).
Total reports received by COPFS is now above last year's average levels.
- The total number of reports received by COPFS decreased at the start of lockdown. Numbers increased during April and May then remained below last year's average levels (dashed lines) throughout June and July. Numbers increased sharply from mid-August but have returned to average 19-20 levels over recent weeks.
- Undertaking report numbers have been consistently higher than 2019-20 levels.
- Custody report numbers had returned to 2019-20 levels but have decreased throughout August and September.
