The release of reconviction figures for 2015/2016 have shown a continued fall in reconviction rates in Scotland. Commenting on the figures, Sacro's Chief Executive, Tom Halpin said:

"Sacro welcomes the progress being made in tackling reconviction rates which are a real indicator of persistent offending within our communities.

"We know that collaboration across public and voluntary services makes a material difference in supporting people to change their lives. The Scottish Government’s focus on a progressive, evidence-led approach to reducing offending is the right way forward. We can see from the outcomes being achieved that the impact of tackling the root causes of offending builds safer communities for us all".
