9 out of 10 Scots happy with local policing

Fear of Crime Down and Satisfaction with Justice System Strong

9 out of 10 Scots are happy with local policing, new statistics show – with 89% agreeing that police were doing a good job in their area.

The Scottish Crime and Justice Survey 2014-15, published today, also shows that fear of crime continues to fall and that a majority of Scots have confidence in the police, in the justice system and in the prison service.

70% of those surveyed agreed that community sentencing was effective in dealing with low level, non-violent crime.

Commenting, SNP MSP Christine Grahame said:

“With crime at a 41 year low, Scotland is the safest it has been for over a generation.

“This reduction in crime levels is supported by our promise to deliver 1,000 more officers, than in 2007 – a commitment we remain dedicated to and continue to deliver upon.

“This approach is clearly paying off, with confidence in local policing strong and fear of crime falling.

“If re-elected the SNP are committed to protecting the police budget in real terms, ensuring that our police officers can get on with the job of making Scotland safer.”
