The Police Scotland Quarter 3 Performance Report for 2021-22 outlined findings of the service’s Your Police Survey between October and December 2021, during which members of the public shared their views on policing in Scotland. The survey showed that overall reported confidence in policing during this period (43%) has returned to levels closer to the 2019-20 average of 48%, following significantly higher results during 2020-21 (57%). Those surveyed said friendly and approachable police officers doing a difficult job in their communities were appreciated, while increased police visibility, especially during COP26, was seen as a positive. The main areas of concern for the public included anti-social behaviour and drug related harm.
