Police reform

In 2011, the Scottish Government set out proposals for the creation of a single police force in Scotland. Legislation setting out how this will be done has now been approved by the Scottish Parliament.

We responded to the bill, with particular reference to local arrangements and how domestic abuse would be handled in policing plans. Our main concern is that a consistent approach to domestic abuse will be maintained throughout Scotland and that local Police commanders in the new divisions should not lose links with multi-agency partnerships and local authorities.

We are currently engaging with the ACPOS police reform team, the Scottish Government and local authorities to discuss how domestic abuse will be included in Local Area Police Plans and at national strategic level.
