Police Scotland More Effective At Solving Violent Crimes Than Police In England Under Westminster Rule

"In the Independent today (19 July 2019): Statistics released by the Home Office show that the number of reported offences resulting in a prosecution had fallen to the lowest level since data recording began in 2015. Only 7.8 per cent of crimes saw a suspect charged or summonsed in 2018-19, compared to 9.1 per cent the year before. For rape the figure was just 1.5 per cent – down from 3 per cent in 2017-18 – and the figure was only 8 per cent for violence, 7 per cent for robbery, 6 per cent for theft and 3.5 per cent for sexual offences.

In sharp contrast in Scotland: Clear up rates for the different crime types show marked differences, from 25.2% for Fire-raising, Vandalism etc. and 36.9% for Crimes of Dishonesty to 76.1% for Non-sexual crimes of violence and 89.6% for Other crimes."
