Criminal Proceedings in Scotland, 2014-15

This bulletin forms part of the Scottish Government series of statistical bulletins on the criminal justice system. Statistics are presented on criminal proceedings concluded in Scottish courts and on a range of measures available as alternatives to prosecution, which are issued by the police and by the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service. Detailed figures for 2014-15 are presented, along with selected trends for the last ten years.

Further detailed tables are published as background statistics on the Scottish Government Crime and Justice Statistics website.

In 2014-15 the number of people with a charge proved in Scottish Courts increased by less than one per cent to 106,507. This is the second consecutive annual increase in convictions, in contrast to the generally downward trend of the last ten years.
