1. Information on orders commenced was collected from local authorities from 2011-12 onward. Figures from the Scottish Court Service suggest around 300 community payback orders were imposed in 2010-11. Figures are available at http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Crime-Justice/Datasets/CPOs.
2. Figures for community payback orders and drug treatment & testing orders for the years 2012-13 to 2015-16 have been revised from those previously published due to updated information being received from some local authorities. These revisions are particularly substantive for CPO terminations in 2015-16 and CPOs in force at March 2016 due mainly to some councils reporting that orders had not been getting closed off on their IT systems.
3. Information on community service, probation and supervised attendance orders was not collected from local authorities in 2015-16 & 2016-17 for orders commenced and in 2016-17 for orders terminated, due to the small numbers involved. These numbers are estimated to be in the region of around 200 and 150 for orders commenced in 2015-16 & 2016-17, respectively, and 200 for orders terminated in 2016-17.
4. Data based on unit-level returns from 2012-13 onward.
5. As a result of revisions made to the 2012-13 & 2013-14 figures for community payback orders since their original publication, the reason for termination is not known for a small number of orders. The figures for the proportion of completions/discharges have therefore been calculated as a proportion of the orders where this reason was known.
6. Fiscal work orders were introduced nationally on 1 April 2015, having been piloted in a small number of local authority areas since June 2008.
7. As a result of the introduction of fiscal work orders in 2015-16 and the non-collection of commencements figures for community service, probation and supervised attendance orders from 2015-16, comparisons for total social work orders commenced over the period covered by this table should be interpreted with caution.
8. As a result of the introduction of fiscal work orders in 2015-16 and the non-collection of terminations figures for community service, probation and supervised attendance orders from 2016-17, comparisons for total social work orders completed/terminated over the period covered by this table should be interpreted with caution.
