Statistics

Information on race crime and on crimes aggravated by religious, disability, sexual orientation or transgender identity prejudice is available on our Equality and Diversity page.

COPFS has a national database which stores operational information about our cases. That allows us to take decisions in each case and track the outcomes. We use it to help us manage our casework effectively and, although it is not a statistical database, we are able to use some of the information it provides to help us monitor aspects of our performance.

The Civil Service People Survey (CSPS) is an annual survey of the attitudes and work-life experiences of Civil Servants. Managed by the Cabinet Office it is open to all Civil Servants and those that work for Civil Service organisations. The CSPS provides consistent and robust metrics which helps understand how to improve levels of engagement across the Civil Service and in individual organisations.

The Lord Advocate directed that from 21 May 2020, Covid-19 or presumed Covid-19 deaths where the deceased might have contracted the virus in the course of their employment or occupation, or where deceased is resident in a care home when the virus is contracted, should be reported to COPFS. This applies to deaths reportable by medical practitioners to the Procurator Fiscal which have already occurred before that date.

COPFS has established a Covid Deaths Investigation Team (CDIT) which is working closely with Police Scotland and other agencies to obtain the information it requires to identify and investigate these deaths. There is more information on this work on the Covid-19 information for bereaved families page.CDIT Monthly Stats - June 2021
