Due to changes made to the official Scottish Parliament website at the start of 2011, our parser that used to fetch their web pages and convert them into more structured information has stopped working. We’re afraid we cannot give a timescale as to when we will be able to cover the Scottish Parliament again. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

2009-10 is the first year in which all police forces started consistently recording minor assaults on police officers, as assaulting an emergency worker under the Emergency Workers (Scotland) Act 2005. As a result, previous years data will not necessarily have included all emergency workers. Data for years prior to 2009-10 is available at police force area level in the paper Assaults on police officers and other emergency workers, in Scotland, 1999-00 to 2008-09 published by the Scottish Government in June 2010, a copy of which is available in the Scottish Parliament’s Information Centre (Bib. number 50564).
