PUBLIC QUESTIONS: In summer 2017, the SPA Board introduced a facility allowing the public to participate and inform the SPA’s scrutiny
of policing during board meetings held in public. The Board would therefore welcome relevant questions in advance of public Board meetings.
Questions must be submitted via e-mail to the SPA at the following address: and should arrive no later than noon
on Monday 27 November 2017. While every effort will be made to raise relevant questions during the Board's consideration, we cannot guarantee that
every question will be addressed at the meeting. Questions submitted which are related to items on the meeting agenda are most likely to inform members
scrutiny of issues.
