Safer Communities & Justice Brief : October 2016
Scottish Government Justice Analytical Services have recently published the October edition of the Monthly Safer Communities and Justice Brief.
The brief provides, in a single place, a concise but comprehensive overview of all the most important Justice and Safer Communities statistics in Scotland. It is published on a monthly basis and readers should feel confident that the data in it are up to date.
The brief includes a special feature on its back page, drawing from recent research undertaken by Justice Analytical Services. This month’s article focusses on the 2015-16 homicide statistics which were published earlier this month.
A copy of the brief will be placed later today on the Crime and Justice Statistics section of the Scottish Government website (http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Crime-Justice/Justicebrief)
Any suggestions for improvement or for other aspects to cover in the brief would be very welcome and should be addressed to JusticeAnalysts@gov.scot
