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 have remained below pre-pandemic levels since February 2021.
- Custody report numbers are consistently around 60% of 19-20 average levels (around 1,200 less per month).
- The number of undertaking reports remain consistently around 60% higher than 2019-20 levels (around 700 more per month) and were at their highest level since the pandemic started (almost twice the 19-20 average) in June 2021.
