Date lodged: 23 August 2016
To ask the Scottish Government what action it will take in relation to Police Scotland officers having second jobs.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 9 September 2016
The Police Service of Scotland Regulations 2013 set out that officers can only hold a business interest with the consent of the Chief Constable, or in the case of a Senior Officer, the Scottish Police Authority. Police officers are not able to take on any second job that might conflict with their policing duties.
