Keywords : Public Confidence

Report Summary

A Public Briefing on confidence in policing. Published in July 2022.

Long term national polling on police effectiveness

The Scottish Crime and Justice Survey (SCJS) has consistently shown high levels of confidence in the police (rated as doing an excellent, good or fair job), with the largest proportion feeling police have been doing a ‘good’ job and views on a whole being relatively consistent over the years.

This is mirrored in the Scottish Telephone Victimisation Survey (SVTS) 2020 where 82% of respondents felt police in their local area were doing an “Excellent/Good/Fair” job.
