Cambuslang Community Council Participation Request: We have to date strengthened channels of communication with Cambuslang Community Council and Police Scotland’s Cambuslang Management Team. We have ensured police visibility at Community Council Meetings which has also increased accessibility to local officers within the wider community of Cambuslang. We are currently still working with Cambuslang Community Council to continue to deliver on the outcomes within the improvement process.
