Report reveals rise in recidivism drop in crime that was previously unknown

More than 3,500 people across Scotland will be placed in the remand system in 2013, according to figures released today by Scotland’s top prosecutor, Sir Stephen House.

House’s report – Scotland on the Edge: Recidivism, Offending and Community Safety – shows that the reduction in crime across Scotland was not only sustained across crime categories during the period 2011/12 to 2013/14, but also that offences that previously fell, are now lower and that fewer people are found guilty of violent crime as a result of the increase in prison.

A total of 4,095 criminal offences were dropped from Scotland between 2003 and 2011/12, a decline of 22%. Over the same period, re울산출장안마cidivism dropped from a reported 11.3% to 8.2%. The number of people in the remand system fell from 8,715 in 2003/04 to 5,624 in 2013/14, a decline of 4.3%. Of the 8,715 who left the system, 5,624 were convicted of some crime.

“Recidivism in Scotland is on the rise, but we need to look at all other factors to understand and explain it,” said Sir Stephen House. “We know that many violent crimes such as murder and manslaughter are down and we know that other forms of crime such as violent fraud are카지노 rising.

“I welcome the progress that has been made over the past five years in reducing recidivism, particularly in serious crime such as rape, murder and armed robbery. The main target for the last six ye강남출장마사지 강남출장샵ars has been to put these crimes under control.”

Reacting to the release of the report, Justice Secretary Kenny MacAskill said: “Scotland’s crime rate is down from 854 offences recorded in 2003/04 to 539 recorded in 2013/14. In 2003/04, the lowest recorded recidivism rate was 6.2%, followed by 6.4% in 2006/07 and 5.5% in 2012/13.

“However, the drop in recidivism can’t be explained by a rise in the overall murder rate as there are already too many of those in jail, but there also has to be a decline in burglaries, car burglaries and assault as those in prison are in many ways like the ‘offenders’ in general.
