Answered by: Michael Matheson 26 May 2016
Scotland already has strong measures in place to ensure effective accountability of policing under the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012. The Scottish Government is also working closely with the Football Safety Officers Association for Scotland on the issue of safety at football stadia and sports grounds.
