The Safer Communities & Justice Brief for April – covering the period up to 28th April.

The purpose of this briefing is to provide, in a single place, a concise but comprehensive overview of a number of important justice and safer communities statistics. The brief includes a special feature on its back page. This month’s back page article covers the civil justice statistics in Scotland for 2020-21, which were published yesterday.

This will be the last monthly brief issued in its current form. From May onwards, a report will be published on the last Thursday of the month which brings together the material in the monthly brief with more detailed information currently produced for the Coronavirus (COVID-19): Justice Analytical Services data report.
