Area Commander

Chief Inspector Wayne Morrison is the Area Commander for Angus. He is based at Forfar Police Office.


Angus is an area of outstanding natural beauty, which captures the very essence of Scotland. Situated on Scotland's glorious east coast, the county is home to Arbroath Abbey - the birthplace of the historic Declaration of Scottish Independence in 1320. Breathtaking mountains, magnificent glens and a rugged coastline provide the stunning backdrop to the seaside towns and market burghs of Angus today.

A historic but forward looking county, the Angus economy has grown from its agricultural and seafaring origins and now supports a diverse portfolio of business including the oil industry, engineering, textiles, pharmaceuticals and advanced digital media.

Angus has much to offer residents, visitors and business in an area of just 2,200 square kilometres. With a population of 116,900 (2015) Angus has seven main towns - Arbroath, Forfar, Montrose, Carnoustie, Kirriemuir, Brechin and Monifieth.

Most of the population lives within these towns and the coastal & Strathmore areas, with the remote glens to the north of the county having a very sparse population
