1. Figures for diversion from prosecution for 2015-16 and 2016-17 have been amended from those originally published last year. This is due to the erroneous exclusion last year of revised figures for South Ayrshire for 2016-17 and the receipt of updated information for Angus for 2015-16 and 2016-17.

2. Figures for bail supervision for 2016-17 have been amended from those originally published last year due to the receipt of updated information for South Lanarkshire.
