Scrutiny and oversight of policing Brexit

The Chief Constable and Deputy Chief Constable have reported regularly to the Authority on the development of Police Scotland's contingency plans for Brexit. The Authority has considered carefully the resource implications of various scenarios.
The operational deployment of police officers is a matter for the Chief Constable and it is important that his operational responsibility is understood and respected. As the situation develops, the Chief Constable will brief the Scottish Police Authority regularly so that we can continue our scrutiny of these arrangements and raise matters of concern and public interest.
