ISBN: 9781782563181

Consultation paper and proposals for draft regulations relating to the Police Service of Scotland, for consultation.

Executive Summary

The Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012 changes the policing landscape in Scotland, bringing together the current eight forces, the Scottish Police Services Authority (SPSA) and the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency (SCDEA) into a single Police Service of Scotland from 1 April 2013.

This consultation relates to the suite of seven Police Regulations made under section 48 of the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012, relating to the governance and administration of the Police Service of Scotland. These are key to facilitating the transition from the current eight forces to the Police Service of Scotland, following the reform introduced by the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012 (also referred to as the Act).
