Public Policing Consultation Campaign

The Campaign

Police Scotland's Public Consultation campaign launched on 7 April. Now that we are in the fourth year of Police Scotland, the consultation process is widening and becoming more flexible. The consultation process is moving online to a digital format and consultation will be open all year. The question set has been reviewed and after consultation with partners and key stakeholders there is a new question set. 

The marketing campaign will run across Scotland from 7 April – end March 2017 with radio, digital and PR. Aim is to promote and engage the public in our new consultation process.
