Scotland’s justice statistics and trends

This data visualization tool showcases publicly available data in a way that supports understanding of the community justice landscape at a local authority area level.

The information has been assembled from publicly available sources and is the first iteration of the dashboard with the intention of adding further data sources to provide a more robust view of community justice data.  It includes details on Community Justice Social Work, Community Payback Orders, Throughcare, Unpaid Work, Diversion from Prosecution, Bail, Structured Deferred Sentences and Drug Treatment and Testing Orders and up-to-date information on prison data.To find out more, start by selecting the central greyed boxes in the centre of the Tableau dashboard page to navigate through the national picture or go to the landing pages at the top of the dashboard and select your local authority area to start your journey through the data.  You can access the dashboard here: CJS Tableau Visualization
