Your Priorities

We are acting on priorities to influence policing activity in your area. For more information see the Multi Member Ward Plan.

Police Scotland consults with the public every year on what their priorities are for policing in their community. Take our survey to give us your opinion and help shape the way you feel policing should be coordinated across Scotland in your local community.
