Scottish Crime, Punishment and Justice: Cost Trends in Comparative Context

Published: April 2011

The Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research (SCCJR) has been requested by Audit Scotland to provide information on Scottish crime and punishment trends in a comparative context, showing high level trends over the decade 2000-2010. The research focuses on Scotland, for which we have detailed information and familiarity, and compares it to high level data on Scotland’s neighbours (England and Wales and similarly sized neighbours of Ireland, Denmark, Finland and Norway); Europe more generally; and in some cases where appropriate information exists, globally.
