Women in the Criminal Justice System in Scotland - The Facts

Do you know that in the last 10 years, the number of women convicted of a crime has gone up by 14% yet the number of women in custody has more than doubled?

Almost all women in prison in Scotland have a history of drug and alcohol use.

The Community Justice Authorities have published a useful factsheet on women in the Criminal Justice System. This is now published under our 'Publications" tab in Other Publications.

Local Authority Community Payback Order Annual Reports 2012/13

The Community Payback Order was introduced on 1 February 2011, replacing a number of other community sentences including Community Service Orders, Probation Orders and Supervised Attendance Orders. 

Scottish Government have published a Summary of Local Authority Annual Reports today (07/02/2014). This document summarises annual reports provided to Scottish Ministers by Local Authorities on the second year of operation of the Community Payback Order. 
It covers four broad areas: the use of the unpaid work or other activity requirement; the use of requirements other than unpaid work; issues affecting services provided by other partners and the work underway to resolve them; and other relevant information (resources, the role of the supervising officer and women offenders).
Fife, Clacks, Falkirk, & Stirling CPO Annual Reports are published on our website under "Publications"

Redesign of Community Justice

Scottish Government published their response to "Redesigning the Community Justice System: A Consultation on Proposals" on 17th December. The main recommendations from this response include local Community Planning Partnerships taking on responsibility for Community Justice and the formation of a National Body to provide strategic oversight. The Scottish Government acknowledged the Community Justice Authorities as being major partners in the delivery of Community Justice outcomes since they were formed in 2006. Kenny MacAskill stated in his response that “their (CJA) commitment and abilities have never been in question and I remain committed to utilising their valuable knowledge and experience as we move through the transition period and into the new arrangements”

The full document is available on the Scottish Government website and also under "Other Publications" on our website.
