S5W-05591: Liam McArthur (Orkney Islands)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 15 December 2016

To ask the Scottish Government how many complaints of sexual exploitation against Police Scotland have been (a) reviewed and (b) investigated by (i) the Police Investigations and Review Commissioner and (ii) the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service in each year since 2013-14.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 12 January 2017

The Scottish Government does not hold this information centrally. Any complaint should be referred to the Chief Constable in the first instance. If there are allegations of a criminal nature then the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service may direct the PIRC to investigate.
