When Police Scotland was launched on the 1st of April, the structure of the country’s law enforcement landscape fundamentally changed. The amalgamation of the nation’s eight territorial forces into a single entity was the star development at the heart of police reform but the overall process is still ongoing.
It is against this fascinating backdrop that Holyrood’s latest Police Scotland conference was held. Delegates had the opportunity to gain an unparalleled insight into the early days of Police Scotland, and to engage with some of the issues attached to the establishment of the new service.
FIS attended the conference in their capacity of assisting Police Scotland to merge the eight territorial Centurion databases into one combined system.
