New Annual Policing Plan for 2022-23
Police Scotland’s Annual Police Plan for the year ahead has now been launched.
Chief Constable Iain Livingstone presented the latest Annual Police Plan 2022/23 (APP) at the Scottish Police Authority Board on 23 March 2022, after which it was laid in the Scottish Parliament.
Our APP was developed with colleagues from across the service and is framed around the strategic outcomes that describe the impact and difference Police Scotland aims to make to the lives of people across Scotland, as set out in the Joint Strategy for Policing, Policing for a Safe, Protected and Resilient Scotland. The plan describes clearly how we will prioritise our resources towards the issues that cause the most harm to people and communities, in order to have the greatest impact by outlining our objectives and our activity across our service.
Basing performance around outcomes means that when we are reporting progress, we can describe and demonstrate the impact of policing on Scotland’s communities. The performance framework is being refreshed at present and this will fully align to the strategic outcomes and objectives set out in the Joint Strategy and the APP. This will continue to support us to monitor and measure progress on our strategic outcomes and priorities for policing to the Scottish Police Authority.
