1. Across the country, Police Scotland ( PS) have identified disparity in the reporting to the Mental Welfare Commission ( MWC) . PS have engaged with MWC and conducted an initial review of practices. Measures taken following this were not as effective as anticipated, therefore further work in this area resulted in revised reporting processes being put in place in April 2018. PS are actively monitoring these processes in conjunction with the MWC.
