1. Forces can only identify a repeat victim if s/he has been previously entered onto their database. The longer the database has been in existence, the more likely it is that a repeat victim can be recognised as such. Police forces have maintained their databases over different periods and the proportion of identified repeat victims varies accordingly.

2. Central and Grampian are currently unable to provide information on repeat incidents.

3. Lothian & Borders are currently unable to provide detailed information about previous incidents.
