Strategy, policy and direction for Police Scotland is determined by the Service's senior management team. 

The Chief Constable has overall responsibility for the administration and management of police operations in the Service area, and he is supported by the Service's chief police officers and selected senior members of police staff.

Individually they bring a wide range of professional expertise to strategy and policy-making, while collectively they set the agenda that inspires and drives the Service.
