What are your priorities for your Police service? - Scottish Government Consultation

What are your priorities for your police service? - A Review of our Strategic Police Priorities

The Scottish Government has launched its broadest ever initiative to gather views on what the people of Scotland would like from their police service.

The information gathered will be used to develop new Strategic Policing Priorities, the framework set by the Scottish Government outlining their expectations for both the Scottish Police Authority and Police Scotland.

The Scottish Government set out its commitment to strengthening policing in the Programme for Government in September, three years on from the creation of the national service.

This consultation builds on work that has already carried out, including a local police scrutiny summit in September, led by the Cabinet Secretary for Justice and the ongoing local planning process led by Police Scotland.

Responses on this stage of engagement can be submitted until Friday 12th February 2016 and the results of this first stage will be used to draft revised Strategic Police Priorities which will then be the subject of a formal consultation where there will be further chance for input.  Further information can be found on the Scottish Government website (see link below).
