Housebreaking charges since 2005/2006 (R012277)

Housebreaking charges since 2005/2006 (R012277)

Thank you for your e-mail of 3 February 2016 in which you requested the following information under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 (FOISA):


“How many people have been charged of the crime of housebreaking within each PFO jurisdiction in Scotland, broken down by each financial year since 2005/06?”

I refer also to my telephone discussion with you on 23 February where I highlighted the variations to the charge of housebreaking and you confirmed that you were content to receive data involving all aspects of housebreaking charges.  The information you have requested is attached at Annex A below and I additionally attach the list of charges involved in the compilation of the data.
