From April-June 2015, Justice Analytical Services conducted a consultation of stakeholders and users of the suite of publications based on returns from Police Scotland, which includes the Homicide in Scotland statistical bulletin series.
A report on the results of the consultation can be found at the link below: http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Crime-Justice/scotstatcrime/StakeCon/RCUC2015.
Justice Analytical Services reflected on the feedback received from the consultation during the production of this bulletin and the previous one. This included continual development of new graphics to highlight the main points conveyed by these statistics.
We always welcome feedback on the content of our statistical bulletins and users are welcome to submit their comments to: JusticeAnalysts@gov.scot.
