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).
