Introduction

The statistics presented in this bulletin are derived from the data used in the Criminal Proceedings in Scotland statistical bulletin. The Criminal Proceedings data is in turn derived from information held on the Criminal History System (CHS) which is maintained by Police Scotland.

Changes made to this year’s report

The changes made to this year’s report are as follows:

  • Reconviction rates for extended sentences and supervised release orders have been published separately from other custodial sentences (Table 8).
  • New experimental statistics showing the reconviction rate by offender’s local authority of residence have been included (Table 12).
  • Inclusion of the recently introduced Recorded Police Warning non-court disposal (Table 14).
  • New tables have been added that show breakdowns by age and gender for repeat non-court disposals (Tables 16, 17, and 18).
