To ask the Scottish Government, in light of the review of the Police Scotland estate, what action it is taking with Police Scotland to ensure that local stations are protected.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 30 November 2016
Governance of the Police Service of Scotland is a matter for the Scottish Police Authority, as established in the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012 with cross-party support. The Scottish Government would encourage all members to participate in local engagement activity being led by Divisional Commanders in relevant areas.
