The SFRS is to contribute to the achievement of the SG’s primary purpose of
increasing sustainable economic growth by aligning its aims and objectives with the
Programme for Government, Scotland’s Economic Strategy and National
The SFRS also has a critical role to play in helping to deliver the SG's
priorities for the justice sector, as recently formalised in the four outcomes in the
Justice in Scotland: Vision and Priorities 2017 -
? We live in safe, cohesive and resilient communities
Prevention and early intervention improve wellbeing and life chances
Our system and interventions are proportionate, fair and effective
We deliver person-centred modern affordable public services
The Strategy places the SFRS firmly within the wider family of organisations
who work to keep our communities safe and to administer justice in its various forms.
The SFRS should seek to build on existing partnerships and forge new ones, coming
together with other justice public bodies to engage jointly with the SG on strategic
issues, including the scope for improving efficiency across the sector.
