Crime Audit: 2020 - Terms of Reference

06 July 2020

The aim of this audit will be to assess the state, efficiency and effectiveness of crime recording by Police Scotland and the extent to which recording practice complies with the Scottish Crime Recording Standard and Counting Rules. This audit will also consider a number of related issues within our selected sample of records including the accuracy of direct crime reports submitted by new Resolution Teams and the use of the cyber marker when recording incidents and crimes.

The timescales for delivery of this audit have been changed due to the response to COVID-19, which led to the temporary suspension of routine inspection work in March 2020.
