The Strategy For Justice In Scotland
We contribute both directly and by working collaboratively with other parts of the justice system to deliver the Scottish Government's Strategy for Justice in Scotland. This aims to deliver a justice system that contributes positively to a flourishing Scotland, helping to create an inclusive and respectful society, in which all people and communities live in safety and security, individual and collective rights are supported, and disputes are resolved fairly and swiftly.
- The Strategy for Justice sets the following priorities:
- reducing crime, particularly violent and serious organised crime
- tackling hate crime and sectarianism
- supporting victims and witnesses
- increasing public confidence and reducing the fear of crime.
It identifies a number of Justice Outcomes which describe what the strategy is aiming to achieve. Through its objectives, COPFS contributes to the following Justice Outcomes.
- we experience low levels of crime and low levels of fear, alarm and distress
- we are at a low risk of unintentional har.
- our people and communities support and respect each other, exercising both their rights and responsibilities
- our public services are fair and accessible
- our institutions and processes are effective and efficient
- our public services respect the rights and voice of users.
