NEW 10 YEAR VISION FOR POLICING IN SCOTLAND

Publised date : 27 Feb 2017

Justice Secretary Michael Matheson MSP has welcomed a new 10-year vision for policing in Scotland set out by the Scottish Police Authority and Police Scotland.

'Policing 2026' which includes a commitment to increase frontline capabilities, including new civilian specialists in cyber-crime and mental health, is open for public consultation for the next 10 weeks.

Paying tribute to police officers and civilian counterparts for all the work they do, Mr Matheson said Scotland's police service is "working well" with recorded crime at its lowest level since 1974 and clear up rates at a 40-year high.

He added: "Alongside this Government’s commitment to protect the police resource budget for each year of this parliament, we have provided an enhanced £61 million reform budget for 2017-18 to support the transformational change outlined in this draft strategy.

"I urge all those with an interest to have their say on this next phase of policing in Scotland and look forward to seeing the final strategy at the end of consultation, when I will further update Parliament.”
