Scottish Police Authority board to meet in Lockerbie

The board of the Scottish Police Authority holds its next (public) meeting in Lockerbie on Wednesday, 26 June.  

In terms of the Police and Fire Reform (Scotland) Act 2012, section 2, the functions of the SPA include:
* to promote and support continuous improvement in the policing of Scotland
* to keep under review the policing of Scotland
* to hold the chief constable to account for the policing of Scotland.

If the investigation currently being conducted by former Dumfries and Galloway chief constable Patrick Shearer upholds Justice for Megrahi’s allegations of criminal misconduct in (inter alia) the Lockerbie police investigation, then the SPA board will almost certainly have a part to play in promoting systems to prevent such conduct ever being repeated in future.

The SPA's report on the Lockerbie meeting can now be read here.
