Weekly Roundup - 7th July

Published 07 July 2017

Welcome to the latest edition of Police Scotland’s Weekly Roundup, where we summarise the news from the last seven days.

Earlier this week Police Scotland and Aberdeenshire Council were pleased to launch the local policing plan for Aberdeenshire for 2017 - 2020. This outlines our Policing Priorities for the area.


Divisional Commander Chief Superintendent Campbell Thomson said: "This plan highlights our policing priorities over the next three years and where our local officers will build on the strong performance from last year, tackling the local issues that our communities tell us matter to them.

"Much of our success is due to the support we receive from the community as well as the strong partnership links we have. Working hand-in-hand with our partners to provide a holistic response to issues ensures that Aberdeenshire continues to be one of the safest places in Scotland."

Elsewhere in Scotland our commitment to tackling domestic abuse continues as Shane Ramsay was found guilty of two rapes and three assaults following a trial at Edinburgh High Court on Monday and was sentenced to nine years in prison.

Our your view counts survey highlights Drug Dealing / Drug Misuse is local and national priority. So good news as a 33-year-old man has been charged following the recovery of cocaine with a street value of around £18,000.

The drugs were recovered following an intelligence led operation from the Temple of Fiddes area of the A90 on Wednesday, 5 July.

In the West Police at Shettleston recovered a quantity of drugs and two men aged 45 and 47 years were arrested and detained in police custody in connection with the recovery.

This week we've been preparing for TRNSMT Festival Between Friday 7 July and Sunday 9 July, Glasgow will welcome music fans from across the country who will be flocking to see their favourite bands in the iconic Glasgow Green. 

Superintendent Stewart Carle, the Event Commander said: “Glasgow will see an influx of tens of thousands of people attending this three day music festival - travel routes and the city centre are going to be busier than normal, so please plan your journey ahead. Our preparations with our partners have been ongoing for many months and the public’s safety is our top priority."

Festival continues over the weekends - so if you're there have a great weekend and stay safe with our Festival Campaign tips.

Have a good weekend.
