Police Reform: Learnings in Scotland
The Strategic Review of Policing in England and Wales was published on 8 March 2022. This independent review, chaired by Sir Michael Barber and hosted by the Police Foundation, identified 53 reform recommendations for the 43 police services in England and Wales.
Police reform in Scotland started in 2013 with the formation of Police Scotland. The SPA has prepared a briefing document which outlines the background, key outputs and learnings from police reform in Scotland.
