The SNP Scottish Government have taken many steps to ensure Scotland is a safe place to live, and Scotland is now safer with recorded crime at the second lowest level since 1974.
Since we took office, recorded crime is down by 35 per cent, violent crime is down 43 per cent, robberies are down 47 per cent and crimes of dishonesty are down 32 per cent
Latest figures also show that those aged under 21 who have been convicted of a crime has dropped from 27,832 in 2007 to 8,814 in 2017 – a fall of nearly 70 per cent. Amongst young men, the number of convictions has fallen from 24,526 to 7,596 during the SNP’s time in power.
And the reconviction rate has been reduced to its lowest level in 18 years, thanks to tough community sentences.
