Strategic Police Plan


The Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012 requires the Scottish Police Authority (SPA) to develop a Strategic Police Plan. This plan is required to be reviewed when the Scottish Government's Strategic Police Priorities have been significantly revised.

The Scottish Government published a revised set of Strategic Police Priorities in December 2019 and the six priorities identified are reflected in a revised Strategic Police Plan which the Authority jointly developed with Police Scotland.

Following a public consultation process, held between 20 January and 2 March, a Strategic Police Plan was approved by the SPA Board in March 2020 and subsequently approved by Scottish Ministers and laid in the Scottish Parliament on 9 April 2020.
