Reconviction rates fall again

Reconviction rates in Scotland are now at their lowest level in 14 years, according to new Government statistics.

The report ‘Reconviction Rates in Scotland: 2010-11 Offender Cohort’, carries two sets of figures: the reconviction rate and the reconviction frequency rate. The reconviction rate is the proportion of offenders who have re-offended within the last twelve months. The latter is the average number of reconvictions for every 100 offenders over the same period.

The figures reveal that the one year reconviction rate for the under-21 age group has fallen 8% since 1997-98, down from 42.4% to 34.1%. This represents the lowest-ever recorded level. In fact, the one year reconviction rate and the one year reconviction frequency rate for all offences are now both at their lowest level over the last 14 years.

In addition, the one year reconviction rate for offenders given Drug Treatment and Testing Orders has fallen by nearly 14% over the last eight years.
