Robbery research published

The Scottish Government has published details of an in-depth study into robbery, alongside the latest recorded crime figures.

The research shows that robbery in public settings, by strangers, has fallen from 2,080 in 2008-09 to 860 in 2017-18. The use of a knife or other bladed/pointed articles in robbery has also dropped from an estimated 1,270 to 550 over the same period.

Teenagers and people in their twenties are also now much less likely to commit a robbery, or be a victim of one.

The research was published alongside the latest recorded crime statistics for 2017-18, which show 244,504 crimes recorded by the police – an increase of 1% and the second lowest level since 1974.

Since 2008-09 overall recorded crime has fallen by 35% - including a 43% fall in violent crime; a 47% fall in robbery and a 32% decrease in crimes of dishonesty.
