    Introduction This report is an analysis of the figures supplied by the Childrens Reporter for children in Argyll and Bute who have been referred to the Reporter on offence grounds. The period covered is from September 2005 to September 2006. During this period 595 offences were recorded by the Childrens Reporter for this authority. The figures supplied have been used to produce this report, and have been evaluated for the following criteria:

    Age range of offenders Gender of offenders Area: data on individual area basis Offence types Day of the week: is offending related to specific days Drug & alcohol involvement in offences Persistent offenders Repeat offenders: were children previously involved in offending behaviour in 2004/05 SACRO referrals Offending whilst in residential placement Demographics Comparison with previous years data including trends

    The report aims to provide useful data to assist in the planning and provision of youth justice services in Argyll and Bute and to aid in addressing offending behaviour among children and young people in the community. To ensure confidentiality individuals are not identifiable in this report. Regarding persistent offenders it should be noted that the Scottish Executives definition of a persistent offender is someone who has committed 5 or more offending episodes in a six month period. Argyll and Bute Council however defines a persistent offender as someone who has committed five or more offences in a six month period. It was felt that using this definition would allow a more perceptive analysis of this type of offending behaviour. Therefore, throughout this report reference to persistent offending uses this councils definition. For information and reference a full list of statistics are included in Appendix 1 at the end of the report. A glossary of offence categories is included in Appendix II at the end of the report.

Comparing charts 6 & 8, Bute is second highest for the number of offences committed yet is only fourth equal for number of offenders. This means that although Bute has a relatively higher rate of offences it has a relatively fewer number of offenders. This would imply that individual offenders on Bute are tending to commit a higher number of offences. Number of offenders for each community support team:

    Persistent Offenders Persistent offenders for this report are defined as offenders who have committed five or more offences within a six month period. (Note that this does not mean offending episodes). This definition also means that only offences committed within a six months timescale have been used in the following analysis. The offenders may, in actual fact, have committed more offences than have been counted under this definition, over the period from September 2005 to September 2006. 24 offenders come under the category of persistent offender. This is 10% of all offenders. These persistent offenders committed 200 offences within the six month time frame. This means that 34%3 of all offences committed were by persistent offenders.

    Top ten offences Top ten offences by all offenders Top ten offences persistent offenders Table 9 Table 10

    As can be seen by comparing the two tables4 above persistent offenders tend to commit the same types of offences as other offenders. B.O.P., Assault and V & MM are still the top three offences.

    3 This figure does not take into account all offences committed by a persistent offender, only those committed within the six month time frame (specified criteria) 4 A complete table of all offences committed by persistent offenders can be found in Appendix I

    The top ten offences committed by repeat offenders in 2005/06 are the same top ten offences as committed by all offenders. It would appear that repeat offenders are committing the same type of offences as non repeat offenders; its just that they are continuing to offend for a longer period of time.

    Offending whilst in Residential Placement Information used to produce this section of the report has been collated from a variety of sources and although every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, any inferences should be treated with caution. For the purpose of this section only offending which occurs whilst in a placement is taken into account, there may be offences which have taken place prior or post placement, but these are not considered here. Nor is location of offending behaviour taken into account; as this information is unavailable. Therefore offences may be occurring whilst either in a placement or during home leave. There were 118 offences committed by young people whilst in a residential placement. This accounts for 20% of all offences committed in Argyll and Bute.

    There were 8 females in a residential placement during the period of this report who committed 36 offences. This accounts for 31% of all offences committed whilst looked after and accommodated.

    There were 14 males in a residential placement during the period who committed 82 offences. This accounts for 70% of all offences committed whilst looked after and accommodated.
