Meeting of the Scottish Police Authority - 26 February 2023

Date : 23 February 2023

Location : Crown Plaza, Glasgow


Background

In November 2020, the Final Report on the ‘Review of Complaints Handling and Misconduct Issues in Relation to Policing’, undertaken by Dame Elish Angiolini, was published. The Report recommended that:

The SPA Complaints and Conduct Committee's scrutiny function should be reported on in the SPA annual report, drawing out particular trends, highlighting improvements or concerns and using complaints data as an indicator of communities' satisfaction or dissatisfaction with policing services (Recommendation 31).

In order to ensure public confidence in the police, the SPA should confirm each year in its annual report whether or not in its view, based on an informed assessment by the Complaints and Conduct Committee and evidence from the relevant audits, the Chief Constable has suitable complaint handling arrangements in place (Recommendation 59).

Whilst high level summary is included in the SPA Annual Report, it was recognised that there was an opportunity to supplement this approach through the publication of a more detailed, Committee-specific annual report.
