CHR and review officer

Review team publishes CHR examining eight complaints

One CHR has been published by the Review team this week, which addressed eight complaints made against Police Scotland.

In PIRC/00082/20, the complaints in this case arose after the applicant was charged with engaging in a course of conduct which caused fear or alarm.

We have found that Police Scotland handled complaints 1 to 4 to reasonable standard but not so complaints 5 to 8. Consequently, we have made two recommendations to address the shortcomings in Police Scotland’s handling of the complaints. We have recommended that Police Scotland conducts further enquiry into complaint 7 and issues a fresh response to complaints 7 and 8.

Our recommendations should be implemented by Police Scotland within two months.
