PUBLIC QUESTIONS: In June 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: SPApublicvoice@spa.pnn.police.uk and should arrive no later than noon on Wednesday 27 September 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. For this meeting, representations relating to agenda item 9 were received from Highland Council and circulated to all Board members to inform their scrutiny - Letter from Highland Council.
