Weekly Roundup 5th July

Published 05 July 2019

Hello, and welcome to the latest edition of Weekly Roundup, bringing you the best in Scottish policing news from the past seven days.

On Wednesday, we announced that Police Scotland are among emergency services set to benefit from £138k in Scottish Government funding towards wellbeing support. Representing Police Scotland at the event at the Scottish Ambulance Service’s Springburn base, Superintendent Ian Thomson, Safer Communities said, “The organisation is committed to the welfare of our officers and staff. A range of support mechanisms are already in place across Police Scotland, including Your Wellbeing Matters, occupational health and the Employee Assistance Programme, all of which have been further enhanced through the creation our network of Wellbeing Champions.

Also this week, we've been keeping a close eye on the roads, with officers carrying out a dedicated weekend of activity in the Skye and Lochalsh areas, and no less than ten motorists charged with drink and drug offences in the North East division.

Meanwhile, a man has been jailed for drug offences in Fife, a serial domestic abuser in Lochgilphead has been jailed for nine years, and a teenager in Edinburgh has been charged after the theft of three motorcycles.

And finally, we held our Long Service Awards in Aberdeen on Wednesday, recognising and honouring several officers and staff members for their years of work and dedication to Police Scotland.

That's it for this week, folks. Stay safe, have a great weekend, and we'll see you again next Friday.
