Final report of the Commission on Women Offenders, which was established to examine how female offenders are dealt with in the criminal justice system.
The Scottish Crime and Justice Survey (SCJS) is a large-scale continuous survey measuring adults’ experience and perceptions of crime in Scotland. The survey is based on, annually, 13,000 face-to-face interviews with adults (aged 16 or over) living in private households in Scotland.
The Justice Committee believes that the effective rehabilitation of offenders is vital in order to reduce crime levels, reduce the economic and social costs of crime and help create a safer Scotland. It also enables those individuals who have offended, for a variety of reasons, to choose a better life for themselves, their families and communities.
