S5W-16433: Liam McArthur (Orkney Islands)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 4 May 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what oversight there is of the use of cyber kiosks by Police Scotland.

Answered by: Michael Matheson 17 May 2018

Under the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012, the Scottish Police Authority (SPA) holds Police Scotland to account. To aid their efforts, the SPA Board is currently considering a proposal to establish a designated SPA Committee to oversee police reform and transformation, including matters of significant public interest. Where issues arise that concern the wider policy and legislative framework that Ministers are responsible for, then the Scottish Government would give due consideration to those.
