In respect of your first question "How many members of COPFS were charged with criminal offences"; I can advise that it may be the case that a staff member is charged with an offence by the Police which is then not reported to COPFS, accordingly, in terms of Section 17 of FOISA, we do not hold this information.

In respect of your second question "How many members were charged with civil offences"; I can advise that individuals are not "charged" with civil offences and accordingly, in terms of Section 17 of FOISA, we do not hold this information.

In respect of your next four questions, "How Many Law society Members were convicted of Criminal Offences; how many received jail terms; how many have Criminal Records Serious or Minor; what were the offences Members were jailed for" this is not information which is recorded by COPFS and accordingly, in terms of Section 17 of FOISA, we do not hold this information.

In respect of your final question "do C.O.P.F.S. use psychometric testing in their Selection process." I can advise that it is not commonly used however it can be applied to a recruitment campaign if a decision is made for this happen.

In relation to your questions "What percentage of you're total members swing in Scotland; How many use fabswingers.com or similar sites from B.D.S.M. to other similar distasteful and disreputable distasteful and depraved sex related internet sites; Also what percentage of you're members are in Swing Clubs attending regularly." This is not information recorded by COPFS and accordingly, in terms of Section 17 of FOISA, we do not hold this information.
