Crime in Scotland


Crime in Scotland has decreased and stayed at the lowest levels since 1974, as recorded by Police Scotland. The total recorded crimes in 2020-21 were 246,551. This is 1% lower than the previous year. Over the past ten years, crime in Scotland has decreased by 22%.

Glasgow City remains the most dangerous city in Scotland. It has 12% of Scotland’s population, however the recorded crime was at 18%. When you look at crimes committed per 10,000 population, Dundee City comes higher than Glasgow, but they have very similar crime rates. If you have a business in Glasgow or Dundee, you might want more security.

West Dunbartonshire was the third one on the list, followed by North Lanarkshire, Edinburgh City, and finally Aberdeen City. The lowest crime rate recorded was at Orkney Islands, Shetland Islands, Na h-Eileanan Siar, East Renfrewshire, and Aberdeenshire.

Non-sexual crimes of violence are at 4% of all crimes committed (this includes robbery, domestic abuse, and attempted murder).

“We approached Region Security Guarding with an urgent need for security at a large site in Pineham, Northamptonshire. They provided us with a quotation within the hour and managed to resource a security guard for the following day. The security guard worked on the site for a two month period and was punctual, reliable and professional throughout. Any queries or requests that we had throughout this period, were actioned promptly by the Region Security manager. We would definitely recommend using Region Security, as they provided an excellent service for a reasonable price.”

Why do I need a Scotland security company?


There are many benefits to having the right Scotland security services in place for your business. Security guards can detect criminals that are present on your site and apprehend them swiftly to minimise damage and loss, thus saving you a lot of money from stolen goods and vandalism.

Our Scotland security guards also deter criminals. Having a strong visual security presence means that criminals are far less likely to attack compared to a site with no security presence. Having a reliable Scotland security firm protecting your business not only deters and detects criminals, but it also produces a much safer working environment for everyone at the company.

Region Security Guarding offers several bespoke security solutions to help protect your business against the rising tide of crime. With our security company’s price promise guarantee in place, we are able to ensure you are getting the best price with the highest quality service available, ensuring any business in Scotland is able to benefit from the same high-quality security.

Is Scotland a Safe Place to Live?

Many people say that Scotland is a really safe place to live at, but you should avoid areas like Niddrie, Wester Hails, MuirHouse, and Pilton in Edinburgh. Scotland is a great place for foreign workers, with many opportunities in cities like Edinburgh and Glasgow, so if you wanted to move here and start your own business, then you should go ahead, but get your property secured in advance.

Is Scotland Safe For Girls?

If you’re a girl solo travelling to Scotland, then it’s a very safe destination. Street harassment and theft is rare, and the public services are excellent. But you should always use your common sense, especially if you’re alone at night as the nightlife can get lively, so there is potential for danger.

What Is The Safest Part of Scotland?

According to a poll, Edinburgh is the safest part of Scotland. It might not be the safest according to crime, but many people live here, and have praised how safe they feel living in the city. This was confirmed by 82% of Edinburgh residents who took part in the poll. Generally, 90% of people in Edinburgh felt safe, which is a perfect indicator. But there are still many things to do to make it safer.
