Governance Meetings

This page tells you about governance.

The Scottish Police Authority takes decisions on policing issues in formal meetings; these take place regularly. The Authority is committed to the open, transparent and accountable governance of policing.

The Authority's Governance Framework describes how we work to deliver good governance of policing and how we aim to carry out our responsibilities in a way which is proportionate, accountable and transparent. You can find out more about our governance arrangements from the link below. You can find out more about our Board and committees from the pages below.
