This report covers the period of one year to the end of May 2011.
During this period a further three thematic reports were completed and published.

This is detailed in Annex A.
The second thematic was a review of Learning and Development in Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service including the operation of the new Scottish Prosecution College in Glasgow. This is detailed in Annex B.
