Risk of crime falling

Fewer Scots are likely to become victims of crime, according to the largest survey of perceptions and experiences of crime carried out in Scotland.

The Scottish Crime and Justice Survey, which surveyed 13,000 people across the country, found that the public feel safer in their communities now than in previous years.

It reveals that violent crime fell by 30% in the last two years and people in Scotland are less likely to experience crimes than those in England and Wales.

The survey also shows:

  • 72% of respondents agreed that community sentencing is an effective way of dealing with less serious crime
  • fewer offenders had a weapon in crimes
  • more victims of violent crime (63%) believe that offenders were under the influence of alcohol
  • more people are going to the police when they do experience crime and more people are satisfied with the police handling of their complaint.
  • Scottish Crime and Justice Survey (SCJS) 2010-11
