Inspector Scott Richardson

After talking to local residents, you’ve told us that your greatest concerns are drugs and anti-social behaviour, the fear of your homes being broken into and dangerous driving and parking in your area. In our plans below.


Our team covers Colinton, Bonaly, Oxgangs, Firrhill, Swanston, Buckstone, Fairmilehead, Dreghorn and Redford barracks and a substantial part of the Pentland Hills Regional Park.

Officers will be present at Oxgangs library every Wednesday (Excluding Christmas and New Years day) between 5pm and 6pm.
