Chief Constable Leave of Absence

Speaking following the Cabinet Secretary's statement in the Scottish Parliament today (Wednesday 10 January 2018), SPA Chair Susan Deacon said:

 

"The conduct issues relating to the Chief Constable remain live and ongoing, and it remains inappropriate for SPA to offer public comment.  The SPA is taking action to strengthen further its governance, advice and engagement to ensure that SPA decisons meet the high standards that should be expected of us."
